This is the first course in a series of three upper level laboratory courses MES 301, 302, and 400. In each course, students apply the measurement and experimental techniques learned in MES 201 to explore, experience and verify key theoretical mechanical engineering concepts. MES 301 focuses on the fields of fluid mechanics, dynamics of machines, digital design, and electrical engineering. Course requires a field trip to a local business and students will be required to provide or arrange for their own transportation.

New course required to support overall curriculum change. Current course MES 405 is being split between MES 301, 302, and 400 with additional content added to each.

Student Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, students should be able to:



  1. Write programs for LABVIEW to acquire, manipulate, and display analog signals.

  2. Perform linear algebra matrix manipulations and Eigenvalue analysis using both manual techniques and MATLAB software.

  3. Perform Impact Hammer Modal Testing to determine the natural frequency of a beam and explore various ways to alter the natural frequency.

  4. Apply theoretical vibrations analysis and practical techniques (accelerometers & FFT) to analyze one and two degree of freedom systems.

  5. Determine bias, variability, and response time for various flow devices utilized in the wind tunnel.

  6. Determine and represent boundary layer properties of a flat plate in the wind tunnel.

  7. Perform design verification on a basic part utilizing digital design tools such as laser scanners.

  8. Design, conduct, and document an experiment to explore an engineering concept.

  9. Create a professional engineering laboratory report.

  10. Prepare a professional executive summary memo.
