The basic content chapters are:
• basics of measurements in engineering;
• basic control techniques;
• measurements of temperature and pressure;
• measurement of flow, speed and level of fluids;
• Sound and noise measurement; the notion of noise, the definition of the noise intensity and the effect of noise on humans. Permissible values in accommodation and work areas and sound insulation agents.
• measurements of displacements and vibrations
• power measurement (brake dynamometers) and rotational speed;
• measuring tension and forces in rigid bodies
• moisture measurements;
• measuring the radioactivity of various substances in different environments, the definition of radioactivity and exposure to allowable values in accommodation and work areas and protective equipment.
• analysis of gas components;
• selected chapters from sensors and measuring devices.
Goals and competencies
Measurement is an independent branch in technical disciplines, which represents a more substantial part of any development / research creation. Knowing the limits of the accuracy of the measuring devices enables the student to take a critical look at the limits of the management systems. After all, every thesis, every construction, the implementation / non-implementation of the rules (technical, legal), etc., check with measurements. The aim of the course is to present to the student in a condensed form the physical basics and technical performances of the metrological methods by which the ship's or energy engineer, and also every seafarer, are confronted in practice.
