Faculty Profile 2

Engineering Mechanics & Instrumentation Lab

The Engineering Mechanics Laboratory is primarily dedicated to support the freshmen Mechanical Engineering courses. The laboratory supports experiments related to Newtonian mechanics from a calculus-based fundamental perspective with close coupling to integrated laboratory experiences. Topics include kinematics; Newton's laws of motion; work, energy, and power; systems of particles and linear momentum; circular motion and rotation; and oscillations and gravitation within the context of mechanical engineering, using mechanical engineering conventions and nomenclature. Each topic is reviewed in lecture, and then thoroughly studied in multiple accompanying laboratory sessions. Students conduct experiments using modern data acquisition technology; and analyze, interpret, and present the results using modern computer software.

The laboratory also includes several working stations to perform experiments, and each station is attached to a computer loaded with LabView and other pertinent software.

The lab experiments serve MECE 102: Engineering Mechanics Lab in particular, and any other course that requires mechanics experimentation and/or instrumentations in general.

  • Digital Pendulum Controller 33-201 setup is one of the numerous setups in the Engineering Mechanics & Instrumentation Lab.

  • Studio station, equipped with high-speed PCs possessing all required data processing programs.

  • One of the work stations fully equipped to support numerous experimental setups and measurements.
