Computer Data Acquisition Applications in the Materials Science Laboratory.
Mitchell, Eugene E., Ed.
COED Transactions, v12 n3 Mar 1980
Described are applications of computer data acquisition to three laboratories in materials science at the United States Naval Academy. In each laboratory, data are input to a minicomputer, scaled using previously obtained and stored calibration factors to convert the transducer signals to load, displacement, temperature, etc., and then stored on magnetic tape.
