Integrated Engineering Science Laboratory

Michael Vocaturo
Syed S. Zaidi

Students will conduct a series of prepared experiments throughout the year that will culminate in an independent project of the students' design involving fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and data acquisition tools. Preliminary experiments focus on pressure and Bernoulli's equation. Concepts learned will be applied in subsequent labs involving expanding flows and lift and drag measurements. Experiments will include internal and external viscous flows. Digital electronics including combinatorial and sequential logic, analog-to-digital conversion, digital-to-analog conversion, digital telemetry. Coupled oscillators will be covered.

Sample reading list:
Hayes and Horowitz, The Art of Electronics Student Manual
Horowitz and Hill, The Art of Electronics, 2nd Ed.
A.J. Smits, A Physical Introduction to Fluid Mechanics
Young, Munson and Okiishi, A Brief Introduction to Fluid Mechanics
Fox and MacDonald, Introduction to Fluid Mechanics, 4th Ed.

Reading/Writing assignments:
Five page laboratory write-up each week for 6 weeks. Final independent work project and report.

Design Project - 20%
Lab Reports - 80%

Other Requirements:
Course is required for concentrators

Prerequisites and Restrictions:
MAT 104, MAT 202 (may be taken concurrently), MAE 222 (must be taken concurrently). Laboratory report grades from MAE 221 fall semester will be incorporated into final grade of MAE 224.

Other information:
Textbooks 3, 4, and 5 on reading list are also used for MAE 222 lecture. 20% final grading component 'other' is digital electronics.
