Syllabus of MEASUREMENT & METROLOGY ( NME-403 )
Mechanical Measurements: Introduction to measurement and measuring instruments.
General concept–Generalized measurement system and its elements-Unit sand standardsmeasuring
instruments: sensitivity, stability, range, accuracy and precision-static and dynamic
response- repeatability-systematic, Source of error, statistical analysis of error and random
errors- correction, calibration. Dimensional and geometric tolerance
Sensors and Transducers: Types of sensors, types of transducers and their characteristics.
Time Related Measurements: Stroboscope, frequency measurement by direct comparison.
Measurement of displacement
Measurement of Pressure: Gravitational, directing acting, elastic and indirect type pressure
transducers. Measurement of very low pressures (high vacuum).
Strain Measurement: Types of strain gauges and their working, strain gauge circuits,
temperature compensation. Strain rosettes, calibration.
Flow Measurement: Hot Wire Anemometry, Laser Doppler Velocimetry, Rotameter
Temperature Measurement: Thermometers, bimetallic thermocouples, thermistors and
Measurements of Force, Torque: Different types of load cells, elastic transducers,
pneumatic & hydraulic systems. Seismic instruments
Measurements of Acceleration, and Vibration: Accelerometers vibration pickups and
decibel meters, vibrometers.
Coordinate measuring machine (CMM): Need, constructional features and types,
Metrology and Inspection: Standards of linear measurement, line and end standards.
Interchange ability and standardization. Linear and angular measurements devices and
systems Comparators: Sigma, Johansson’s Microkrator. Limit gauges classification,
Taylor’s Principle of Gauge Design.
Limits, Fits &Tolerance and Surface roughness: Introduction to Limits, Fits, Tolerances
and IS standards, Limit-gauges, and surface-roughness. Measurement of geometric forms like
straightness, flatness, roundness. Tool makers microscope, profile projector, autocollimator.
Interferometry: principle and use of interferometry, optical flat. Measurement of screw
threads and gears. Surface texture: quantitative evaluation of surface roughness and its
