In the field of mechanical measurements, Mechanical Measurements continues to set the standard. With an emphasis on precision and clarity, the authors have consistently crafted a text that has helped thousands of students grasp the fundamentals of the field. Mechanical Measurements gives students a methodical, well thought-out presentation that covers fundamental issues common to all areas of measurement in Part One, followed by individual chapters on applied areas of measurement in Part Two. This modular format fits several different course formats and accommodates a wide variety of skill levels. The separate areas of applied measurements help students see the relevance of mechanical measurement to their own field of interest and offer motivation by addressing real-world measurement problems. The new fifth edition builds on these hallmark features and contains many new topics that reflect changes in the field. A revised chapter on uncertainty analysis reflects the new ASME standards for estimation of uncertainties and provides students with more detailed coverage of the subject. A revised chapter on signal processing gives students more complete coverage of measurement circuit analysis and includes procedures for finding responses of filters and op amps. The increased material on digital measurements provides improved coverage of analog to digital conversion and digital sampling theory, more effectively explaining how computers acquire and store data. The enhanced coverage of electronic instrumentation and electronic sensors helps students better understand this critical area.
