Abstract

This project aimed at updating two existing laboratories in Engineering Experiment course at Worcester Polytechnic Institute: Strain and Pressure Measurement Laboratory and Vibration Measurement Laboratory. Without major alternation to the experiment designs, the author examined laboratory equipment, software and instruction materials for both laboratories. Two alternative signal conditioners are recommended as replacements to the current system; software is updated to improve usability; and comprehensive laboratory instructions are developed based on existing materials. The updated materials are suitable for future use at WPI and other universities.
