Introduction to Mechanical Measurement System is a free online course that provides a foundational knowledge of the elements and properties of the mechanical measurement system in conducting accurate measurements for measurement quantities. This course will teach you important instrumentation skills and relevant to the general concepts of conducting measurements correctly. The course begins by introducing you to different features of measuring instruments that make them suitable for specific scientific and engineering experiments, as well as common classifications of measuring instruments based on their static characteristics.
Next, you will study the important functional elements of instruments and their classifications. You will also learn about the effects of interference in measurement and how to correct them through different types of input modifications and opposition. Then, you will discuss the performance characteristics of some measuring instruments and classify them alongside their kinds of errors. You will also analyze measurement aspects regarding drift, accuracy, and positioning of measurands, as well as loading effects and impedance matching. Finally, you will learn about uncertainty analysis and different statistical analysis conducted for analyzing measurements in experiments, research, and industry, these statistical analyses include the chi-square test and least square method.
