Now revised to reflect the latest standards and advances, Figliola and Beasley's Fourth Edition provides a timely and in-depth reference to the theory of engineering measurements, measurement system performance, and instrumentation. The authors show you how to develop, operate, and analyze measurement systems and report results. The text covers uncertainty analysis and mechanical measurements in one unified presentation, introducing you to the most powerful experimental tools available.
A textbook for a measurement course in the engineering curriculum at either the undergraduate or the graduate level. This revised edition devotes a full chapter to sampling concepts, digital devices, and data acquisition systems with emphasis on PC-based measurement systems; adds thorough sections on force, torque, and power measurements; and adds some 120 new practice problems and a glossary of new terms.
