2.671 Measurement and Instrumentation


Class Info

Experimental techniques for observation and measurement of physical variables such as force, strain, temperature, flow rate, and acceleration. Emphasizes principles of transduction, measurement circuitry, MEMS sensors, Fourier transforms, linear and nonlinear function fitting, uncertainty analysis, probability density functions and statistics, system identification, electrical impedance analysis and transfer functions, computer-aided experimentation, and technical reporting. Typical laboratory experiments involve oscilloscopes, electronic circuits including operational amplifiers, thermocouples, strain gauges, digital recorders, lasers, etc. Basic material and lab objectives are developed in lectures. Instruction and practice in oral and written communication provided. Enrollment limited.

This class has 2.001, 2.003, and 2.086 as prerequisites.

2.671 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by I. Hunter.

Lecture occurs 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 3-270.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
