PRE-REQUISITE : -
This course serves as a generic introduction to testing and calibration. We will discuss the rationale behind testing and calibration, and the factors that affect the need to test and calibrate measurement equipments. One should always make sure that the data produced by the measurement equipment is reliable and accurate. Naturally the equipment must be fit for the purpose and used in such appropriate and suitable courses. The course is part of a series of faculty of industrial sciences and technology compulsory courses. It will concentrate upon calibration and testing of measurement equipments as an operation that relates an output quantity to an input quantity for measuring system under given conditions. Discussion on the relationships among metrology, calibration, and quality systems will be emphasized. Fundamentals of single component calibration and multispecies calibration as well as practical aspects of calibration will be presented. Finally, a brief introduction to uncertainty and methods validation will also be discussed.
1. Describe the technical and philosophical aspects of validation in testing.
2. Trace possible source of uncertainties in testing.
3. Clearly present specific validation method suitable to a particular testing condition or research step.
