**Fundamentals of Engineering**Scales and Scaling**Scales and Scaling**Goals • Understand units and measures • Understand concepts of scaling and types of scales**Units of Measure**• Measurement of Length and Angle are used in Engineering • Length • English - Inches, unless otherwise stated • Up to 72 inches – feet and inches over • SI Units – millimeter, mm • Angle (angular measurements) • English - Degrees, minutes, seconds (60° 30’ 20”) • SI Units - Degrees in decimal (60.53°)**Terms and Definitions - Scaling**• Scaling a drawing is a process for making an object fit the dimensions of the display media (e.g. paper) • Scales are tools used to scale a drawing while creating it – a conversion factor is built in**Length Measurements in English Units**Three Common Types (Labels) for Scales**Types of Scales by Presentation**Open-divided Full-divided**Types of Scales (Tools) by Construction**Up to 12 scales On a triangular scale**Architect’s Scale –**• Major Unit = 1 foot • Subunit = inches • Civil Eng. Scale – • Major Unit = 10’s of feet • Subunit = tenths of major unit • Mech. Eng. Scale – • Major Unit = 1 inch • Subunit = fraction of an inch**Practice Problems**What is the dimension shown? Answer: 1' 9" Scale: 1 ½ inches = 1 foot**Practice Problem**Scale: 1 in = 200 feet What is the dimension shown? Answer: 450 feet**Decimal Inches**Full Scale Millimeters Full Scale 1 2 Fractional Inches Half Scale Fractional Inches Full Scale 3 4 Compound Scale
