Methods of Measurements

The two categories into which the methods of measurements are segregated into are direct and indirect methods.

What are the direct methods of measurements?

In the direct methods of measurement, the quantity that needs to be measured is compared directly with a standard. The quantity that needs to be measured is often referred to as the ‘measurand’. After the measurement is made, the result is usually expressed as a numerical value followed by a unit. The ‘standard’ can be considered as the ‘unit’ in its physical form.

When physical quantities like time, length, and mass needs to be measured, direct methods are employed. Thus, when the length of an object has to be made, we figure out how many units of the length standard makes up the object.

Meter is the unit for length. Thus, if the object measured is considered to be x meters, then it can be understood that x many meters of the standard make up the length of the object.

It has been arrived at through trials that humans can make direct measurements of length to a precision of 0.25 mm. Thus, human factors, as they are known do not allow accurate measurements to be made. Even though length measurements can be made with some level of accuracy, using the direct methods, volume measurements are almost an impossible. It is impossible for humans to also distinguish between a wide range of masses.

What are the indirect methods of measurements?

Because of the inaccuracy of direct methods of measurements, made impossible due to human factors, it is not considered to be accurate, feasible, or practical. Hence the direct methods of measurements are rarely used. Indirect methods are rather used by ‘measurement systems’ which are what all engineering applications utilize.

What are measurement systems?

Measurements are made using instruments, and instruments serves as a physical means for the determination of unknown quantities. Instruments help man measure unknown quantities by acting as an aid or an extension to his natural faculties; there is a limit to the precision to which man can measure an unknown quantity using his natural faculties and without the use of any external aid.

The instrument in turn gives man the ability to get to know the value of an unknown quantity directly from the instrument’s read-out. An instrument in its most simplest form of construction will have a single unit and it would give a reading on its output based on the amount of unknown quantity that is applied to it.

In more complex systems of measurement the measuring instrument may in turn be made of many separate modules. The modules in turn may be made of elements like transducers which converts energy in one form to another. The transducers may convert energy in form to electrical energy which is then fed to other modules which then processes the information held within the electrical signal, and converts it to a form that can be displayed on to an output display screen.

The various modules that make up the measurement system may be enclosed within a single box, or may be kept separately in different boxes. Due to this segregation of the various modules, the instrument that is constructed by bringing together of the various modules is referred to as the measuring system.

Development in science goes hand in hand with development in measurements!

It has been observed that progress in science and technology is achieved only if an equal amount of progress is made in the field of measurements as well. The reason for the same becomes quite clear if you were to take note of the fact that new discoveries are associated with newer phenomenons being revealed, and these discoveries makes it really important that newer measurement techniques be formulated to measure the new discoveries.

Measurements have to back discoveries

It is an impassable truth that whatever newer discoveries are made, the discoveries remain without any value whatsoever, unless it is backed by solid measurements. It is only measurements which can prove that a particular hypothesis is indeed valid when substantiated with actual measurements. Thus, the measurements not merely proves the hypothesis, it also contributes to the understanding of the hypothesis.

Now, discoveries are a never ending process, and one discovery will lead to the other, and the chain of improvising or discovering efficient measurement techniques for the latest of discoveries continues. These are the very reasons as to why we have really advanced measurement systems in our present era, and likewise, we have come to believe that in the present, science and technology is really advanced and progressed.

Two critical functions within every branch of engineering

Within every branch of engineering there are two critical functions, one is the design of newer equipment and its associated processes, and the other is ensuring that the equipment are properly maintained and operated along with giving due importance to the associated processes.

Either of these critical functions involves measurements. The need for measurements can be understood from the fact that a constant feedback of information is required for the continual process of design, operation, and maintenance of the equipment, and it is measurements that provides the required feedback information.

This tutorial of basic equipment design will make it clear on the role measurements play in the critical functions discussed previously.

What exactly is measurement?

When we conduct a process of measuring a particular quantity, the thing we are doing is comparing the unknown quantity (the magnitude of which we intend to identify) with that of a standard that has been predefined. Once they have been compared the ensuing result is identified with a numerical value. Measurement alone is the process by which the physical properties of objects can be identified in terms of numerical values.

An object will have various properties, and during the measuring process any one particular physical property of the object that needs to be measured is compared with a ‘standard unit’ that has been accepted by the industry as a measurement standard for that particular property. A numerical value for the property being measured can be arrived at by comparing how many times the ‘standard unit’ takes to cover the entire of the quantity under measurement.

For example, if the length of a car’s body is to be measured, and if the standard unit is ‘millimeter’, then the car is measured to see how many units of ‘millimeter’ makes up the length of the car. Thus, the length property of the car is compared with an accepted standard unit like the ‘millimeter’, and is expressed by a numerical value after the comparison is complete.

The image shows the dimensions of a popular brand of car. The dimensions have been calculated in millimeters.

In measurements it is important that the numerical value of measurement is always followed by the unit, else the measurement will have no meaning. It is the unit that identifies the property of the object that is being measured. Thus, in the above example the unit is millimeter and indicates that it was the property ‘length’ that was measured. Likewise, there is a unit for area, volume, and so forth.

Thus, while making measurement the things that cannot be ignored and which brings meaning to the measurements made are that the ‘standard’ used for the comparison purposes is an industry accepted one and that it has been properly defined. Further, the device used to make the measurement and the method used to make the measurement should be provable.
