"Bridges the gap between laboratory research and practical applications in industry and power utilities-clearly organized into three distinct sections that cover basic theories and concepts, execution of principles, and innovative new techniques. Includes new chapters detailing industrial uses and isues of hazard and safety, and review excercises to accompany each chpter."
"Praise for the first edition. . . This valuable reference will be of considerable interest to experienced engineers and students alike."
