EMET 3424 - Electromechanical Analysis
The course is an integrating experience of mechanisms and instrumentation. The course will emphasize applications of material learned in courses involving statics, dynamics and strength of materials and will introduce the students to vibrations. The integration of these subjects will be enhanced through the laboratory experience where the student will study different mechanisms with the aid of transducers and instrumentation. The course will include the study of levers, links, slide mechanisms, scotch yoke and the principles of force, torque, velocity, acceleration, inertia and friction. Techniques of instrumentation for R & D and automation including set-up and calibration of transducers, readouts, and data acquisition as well as application of computers to data acquisition, data reduction and design analysis are covered.
