Overview

The new measure of excellence

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.

Features of the Fourth Edition:

  • Updated to reflect the newest ASME/ASNI Test Uncertainty nomenclature and ISO vocabulary.
  • Expanded treatment of mechatronics concepts (Chapter 12, Appendix C).
  • More practical use of operational amplifiers in discussion of signal conditioning circuits.
  • Labview files for self-tutorials on critical concepts and Matlab files for system analyses are available for download on the text’s website. www.wiley.com/college/figliola
  • Updated and revised problem sets, with an emphasis on design considerations.
