Subject Title Metrology and Computer Aided Inspection


Theory: Role of metrology in aerospace engineering and traditional measurement practices – measurements of form errors – limit gauges – comparators – surface roughness and related parameters.

Experiments: Lab practice on linear and angular measurements – optical measurements – measurement of screws/gears – measurement of form errors – measurement of roughness – inspection practices using comparators – interpretation of shop floor drawings and the related measurement exercises using typical engineering/aerospace components.
