Thermo–fluid–dynamics measurements - a.y. 2016/2017
Period (Year/Semester): II/II
Required/expected prior knowledge: Nothing
Lecturers: Musto Marilena
Give improved understanding of measurement uncertainty, methods for measurement uncertainty evaluation and the circumstances in which those methods apply - Help make better use of the GUM - Help tackle more challenging uncertainty evaluation problems than those covered directly by the GUM.
Tables of contents:
Underpinning statistical concepts-Developing and using a measurement model-Formulating a problem of measurement uncertainty evaluation-The conventional approach to uncertainty evaluation of the GUM-Extensions to problems with more than one measurand-Examples and case studies
Measuring sensors for: temperature with contact methods and distance methods, static and dynamic pressure, velocity, thermal flow, flow rate (differential pressure, variable area, turbine, rotameter, fluid dynamics (at generation and precession of vortices, Coanda effect), magnetic, ultrasonic, thermal and Coriolis effect: generality, reliability and accuracy and measurements in the measurements - Applications - Calibration - Construction details - Mounting criteria - Installation and use criteria - Signal processing methods - Automatic data acquisition and processing systems.
