Objectives The theoretical part of this course will provide you with a fundamental knowledge of component testing methods, different types of transducers, and measurement chains. In the practical part, you will set up a component test for a given component. You will prepare the specimens, test them yourself in the laboratory and evaluate the results in the form of a measurement report.
Subject Before new products with mechanical functions are launched on the market, they must be tested extensively to guarantee their functionality. In this course, you will therefore learn how to plan, perform and evaluate mechanical component tests. A sound basic knowledge of various methods of component testing, measurement technology as well as data acquisition is covered. With the knowledge gained, the candidates will plan a component test, prepare test specimens, perform tests in the laboratory and analyze the results.
Criteria for evaluation - Test of the theoretical knowledge in a written exam - Completion of the practical work - Evaluation of the quality of the measurement report
Methods There is a introduction lecture about component testing and measurement techniques. In a flipped classroom approach the students will prepare selected topics in a short presentation to each other. The component tests are prepared and conducted in teamwork.
