Description

Presenting a mathematical basis for obtaining valid data, and basic concepts inmeasurement and instrumentation, this authoritative text is ideal for a one-semesterconcurrent or independent lecture/laboratory course.Strengthening students' grasp of the fundamentals with the most thorough, in-depthtreatment available, Measurement and Instrumentation in Engineeringdiscusses in detail basic methods of measurement, interaction between a transducer andits environment, arrangement of components in a system, and system dynamics …describes current engineering practice and applications in terms of principles andphysical laws .. . enables students to identify and document the sources of noise andloading . .. furnishes basic laboratory experiments in sufficient detail to minimizeinstructional time … and features more than 850 display equations, over 625 figures,and end-of-chapter problems.This impressive text, written by masters in the field, is the outstanding choice forupper-level undergraduate and beginning graduate-level courses in engineeringmeasurement and instrumentation in universities and four-year technical institutes formost departments.
