The applied engineering experiments in this book are designed to cover some fundamental hands-on skills in engineering practice. Topics include metrology for dimensional and temperature measurements, properties and behavior of solid materials, properties and behavior of fluids, and product design and prototype. These experiments will help students transform the meaning of science and engineering principles into understanding and apply them in hands-on activities. Some engineering experiments reflect the most recent development in science and engineering, such as infrared thermometry and additive manufacturing (or 3D printing). In each chapter, the experiment information is presented in a concise manner. It also provides theories or background information for the experiment as addendums. Practical guides are also provided to help student prepare their experimental reports.
