Learn LabVIEW 2013 / 2014 Fast is written for users that have no experience with LabVIEW and only a limited understanding of automatic data acquisition. This primer will help you quickly become proficient using LabVIEW and confident in your ability to create applications in a wide variety of data acquisition topics. The goal of this primer is to introduce you to LabVIEW for hands-on use in automatic data acquisition and controls applications. This primer uses a number of practical real-life examples to provide both breadth and depth to the topic. The real-life examples used in this book demonstrate the value of LabVIEW, provide motivation for learning LabVIEW and make the examples fun to program. The first chapter of this book is designed to introduce you to the general concepts of LabVIEW through the development of a general program that acquires analog input data. The rest of the book introduces you to general concepts of data measurement and generation using LabVIEW’s DAQ Assistants, Express VIs and the configuration approach for automatic data acquisition. This primer has a unique modular structure that does not require the chapters to be completed in succession. After you complete the first chapter you are free to complete whichever sections you would like, in the order you would like to complete them, allowing you to focus on the topics that are of most interest to you. Each section in the primer introduces you to a new data acquisition topic. After an introduction to the topic, a program is developed within this topic using step by step instructions. Each chapter concludes with several additional practical application problems, where the data acquisition program is given, but the detailed steps to create the program are left to you. Example problems are provided for all modes of data acquisition, including analog input and output, digital input and output, and counters. For example, the problems show many aspects of analog input, such as hardware and software timing, buffered and triggered acquisition, and examples with common sensors, such as thermocouples and strain gages. Examples from other acquisition modes show how to drive many common output devices, such as stepper motors, servo motors, and DC motors, as well as software control programs, such as the PID compensator and pulse width modulation.

LabVIEW(R), a product of National Instruments Corporation, is an interactive, hands-on, object-oriented software environment used in instrument control, communications, and a wide range of other applications. It uses graphical language in creating a virtual instrument (VI), which can acquire and process data, display results on a graph, control another instrument and/or an external system, and perform simulation and many other tasks. Because a VI is a software file, it can be easily reconfigured to meet the requirements of a new specification; this ability to alter the functionality of an instrument is an advantage that was never before available to the user. "Applications in LabVIEW" is a comprehensive text that includes -a wide range of data acquisition, analysis, and simulation experiments using LabVIEW software. Topics are presented ranging from an introduction to the basic tools and features of LabVIEW to in-depth, practical experiments with the software. Users are required in many of the experiments to modify existing software in order to achieve a specific measurement, a procedure that will help them better understand the use of LabVIEW.

Controlling a system's vibrational behavior, whether for reducing harmful vibrations or for enhancing useful types, is critical to ensure safe and economical operation as well as longer structural and equipment lifetimes. A related issue is the effect of vibration on humans and their environment. Achieving control of vibration requires thorough understanding of system behavior, and Vibration Monitoring, Testing, and Instrumentation provides a convenient, thorough, and up-to-date source of tools, techniques, and data for instrumenting, experimenting, monitoring, measuring, and analyzing vibration in a variety of mechanical and structural systems and environments. Drawn from the immensely popular Vibration and Shock Handbook, each expertly crafted chapter of this book includes convenient summary windows, tables, graphs, and lists to provide ready access to the important concepts and results. The authors give equal emphasis to the theoretical and practical aspects, supplying methodologies for analyzing shock, vibration, and seismic behavior. They thoroughly review instrumentation and testing methods such as exciters, sensors, and LabVIEW® tools for virtual instrumentation as well as signal acquisition, conditioning, and recording. Illustrative examples and case studies accompany a wide array of industrial and experimental techniques, analytical formulations, and design approaches. The book also includes a chapter on human response to vibration. Vibration Monitoring, Testing, and Instrumentation supplies a thorough understanding of the concepts, tools, instruments, and techniques you need to know before the design process begins.

This book focuses on flight vehicles and their navigational systems, discussing different forms of flight structures and their control systems, from fixed wings to rotary crafts. Software simulation enables testing of the hardware without actual implementation, and the flight simulators, mechanics, glider development and navigation systems presented here are suitable for lab-based experimentation studies. It explores laboratory testing of flight navigational sensors, such as the magnetic, acceleration and Global Positioning System (GPS) units, and illustrates the six-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) instrumentation as well as its data acquisition methodology. The book offers an introduction to the various unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) systems and their accessories, including the linear quadratic regulator (LQR) method for controlling the rotorcraft. It also describes a Matrix Laboratory (MATLAB) control algorithm that simulates and runs the lab- based 3 degrees of freedom (DOF) helicopter, as well as LabVIEW software used to validate controller design and data acquisition. Lastly, the book explores future developments in aviation techniques.
