Mechanical Measurements (ME-318)

Course description:

In this course, experimental measurement techniques utilized in experimental mechanics are discussed and performed. Specifically, experiments pertaining to: stress/strain, displacement, velocity, acceleration, force, thermophysical properties of materials, and fluid mechanics will be discussed in lecture and in many cases performed in the laboratory.
