This unit is specifically designed for graduates requiring a rigorous yet applied and functional knowledge of signal conditioning and data acquistion appropriate for experiments carried out in the maritime field. The subject matter has been designed around the specific problems encounted using the suite of testing facilities of the National Centre for Maritime Engineering and Hydrodynamics. However, upon successful completion and retention of the knowledge gained within this unit the student will be able to transfer the methods to other testing environments. The intensive learning sessions begin with learning activities on transducer technologies for pressure, force, strain, acceleration and flow measurements. Topics on signal conditioning and data acquisition then lead on to filter deisgn. Post- processing of data is covered in the final 2.5 days with specific reference to the hardware already introduced. For all aspects of the course students are exposed to global resources available for such work from the lecturer's experiences of conducting experiments in a number of world renowned facilities.

Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
Campus - H Hobart, L Launceston, W Burnie. Study Centre - V Sydney, R Rozelle, P Beauty Point. Distance units may also have a campus identifier of I Isolated, N Interstate, O Overseas. Units delivered in Transnational Education (TNE) Programs have a campus identifier of A Hangzhou, F Fuzhou, G Shanghai, K KDU Malaysia, Q Kuwait or Y Hong Kong.
