ME 449 Thermal Management Measurement
Provides a survey of laboratory-based techniques used to diagnose electronic cooling problems, and to obtain design data for developing thermal management solutions. Provides significant practical experience: students design and build their own experiments; they take and analyze their own data. Measurements are made with handheld instruments, bench-top instruments, and with computer controlled data acquisition systems. Data reduction techniques involving centering (removal of bias error) and uncertainty analysis are used extensively. Lecture and laboratory.
