Course unit code: 270602_IDP
Course unit title: Experimental Methods
Mode of delivery, planned learning activities and teaching methods:
lecture2 hours weekly (on-site method)
40 hours per semester of study (combined method)
seminar2 hours weekly (on-site method)

Credits allocated: 5
Recommended semester/trimester: Environmental Manufacturing Technologies - master (compulsory), 3. semester
Level of study: -- item not defined --
Prerequisites for registration: none
Assesment methods:
Necessary condition for participation in the exam is successful completion of exercise. For successful completion of exercise students have to submit elaborated written work from each executed measurement of following units:
1) Measuring of production machines parameters
2) Measuring of mechanical indicators quality of solid high-grade biofuels
3) Measuring of chemical- thermic indicators quality of solid high-grade biofuels
Each of elaborated written works will be evaluated by score.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
To obtain an overview and knowledge about measured variables and parameters in the production and environmental technologies and methods of measuring them. To obtain knowledge and practical experience with measurement of selected variables from the field of production and environmental machines and in the field of high-grade solid bio-fuels quality indicators measuring in the laboratory conditions. (and also outside the laboratory). To know the ways of experiment planning, statistical evaluation of measured experimental data, and thus learn to plan, to design and to realize experimental research.
Course contents:
1.)Introduction to experimental tasks, the main phases of experimental tasks
2.)Basic terms, quantities, units, measurable parameters
3.)Experiments designing, experimental plan
4.)Models of experiment
5.)Methodologies for statistical evaluation of measured datas
6.)The measurements uncertainties
7.)Measuring instruments and their properties, calibration of measuring instruments
8.)Accreditation and accredited laboratories, certification
9.)Measurement of selected parameters of production machines
10.)Measurement of selected parameters of production machines
11.)Measurement of selected mechanical indicators quality of solid high-grade biofuels
12.)Measurement of selected mechanical indicators quality of solid high-grade biofuels
13.)Measurement of selected chemical and thermal indicators quality of solid high-grade biofuels
