Overview

Now in its fourth edition, this successful book provides readers with an in-depth introduction to the theory of engineering measurements, measurement system performance, and instrumentation. Emphasis is placed on the use of uncertainty analysis in the design of measurement systems and the statistical nature of engineering variables. Readers will also gain a better understanding of concepts related to system behavior, sampling, and spectral analysis while utilizing the new interactive CD-ROM.
