4-0 out of 5 stars A very useful book
Although the title of this book is called "Practical Temperature Measurement" it could just as easily be called "The Temperature Measurement Encyclopaedia". This is because is it has a very comprehensive review of many different temperature measurement techniques, all divided into convenient groups. Written and presented in a clear and logical manner, this book can be used by not only a novice, who wishes to discover something for the first time, but also by the more experienced reader who wishes to review a topic or search for alternatives. This book reads as a combination of a text book and a handy pocket guide. At the end of each chapter the author provides a useful list of sources of further information, both in book format and web-site addresses. This book will be of great interest and use to anyone with either a general or working knowledge of temperature and its measurement. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Professor Gerardo
Is the best book for Engineers in electronics

5-0 out of 5 stars Brief but complete, With proofs but parsimonious ones
If you have taken a typical EE signals and systems course, you might well enjoy this book as a refresher or reference (most of part I). Esp., the brevity but higher rigor of proofs is appreciated. A lot of part I and all of part II contain advanced sigs. & sys. material, and part III is a admittedly brief presentation of random processes, and estimation, etc. The strength of the book as a learning device is parts I-II. As a ref. the entire book is worthwhile. ... Read more

Book Description

This monograph provides a careful review of the major statistical techniques used to analyze regression data with nonconstant variability and skewness. The authors have developed statistical techniques--such as formal fitting methods and less formal graphical techniques-- that can be applied to many problems across a range of disciplines, including pharmacokinetics, econometrics, biochemical assays, and fisheries research.While the main focus of the book in on data transformation and weighting, it also draws upon ideas from diverse fields such as influence diagnostics, robustness, bootstrapping, nonparametric data smoothing, quasi-likelihood methods, errors-in-variables, and random coefficients. The authors discuss the computation of estimates and give numerous examples using real data. The book also includes an extensive treatment of estimating variance functions in regression. ...

Book Description

From reviews of the first edition: "Extremely useful to metrologissts and to anyone interested in measurement errors"- Measurement Science and Technology

"I suggest that every technical library should own a copy of Measurement Errors. Serious experimentalists whose interests are broad will surely want to examine the book with the intent of buying it". - Applied Mechanics Review

A practical reference on theory and methods of estimating measurement errors and uncertainty for scientists and engineers in industry and experimental research. Building from the fundamentals of measurement theory, the book offers a wealth of practial recommendations and procedures. It differs from the majority of books in that it balances coverage of probabilistic methods with detailed information on the characterization, calibration, standardization and limitations of mesuring instruments, with specific examples from both electrical and mechanical systems, making the book useful to both the theorist and experimentalist

In addition to a general updating to include current research, new material in this edition includes increased coverage of indirect measurements, with a new, simpler,more efficient method for this class of measurements.

Rabinovich was head of the Laboratory of Theoretical Metrology at the All-Union State Research Institute of Metrology in the former Soviet Union. His theory of galvanometrical self-balancing instruments led to the creation of numerous new measuring devices. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Advanced Book About Metrology
As an experimental physicist by education I picked up this book to brush up my measurement knowledge. I was really surprised to discover that this book is about metrology and not experimental physics measurements. In fact it was very educating for me to read about the many differences between those two closely related trades.

Especially I liked the first chapter it has a philosophical depth. Most of it can be read like poetry: enjoying every day a few pages. The deep and thoughtful understanding of the author is stunning.

The following chapters are of a strong varying quality: some trivial, some educational. The mathematics can be followed (or looked up) by people with a physics background. It is not always clear to me why at some points the details of the calculations are spelled out and at others not.

This book is definitely not a textbook or an introduction to the field. You should already have a basic knowledge of the subject. ... Read more

Book Description

Lisa has an important homework assignment--to measure something in several different ways. She has to use standard units like inches and nonstandard units like paper clips to find out height, width, length, weight, volume, temperature, and time. Lisa decides to measure her dog, Penny, and finds out ...

Penny's nose = 1 inch long
Penny's tail = 1 dog biscuit long
Penny's paw print = 3 centimeters wide

... and that's only the beginning! Lisa learns a lot about her dog and about measuring, and even has fun doing it.

This clear and engaging concept book, delivered with a sense of humor, is certain to win over the most reluctant mathematician.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for teaching measuring!
I used this book with my kindergarteners and they adored it! They already knew Penny from the book about maps so they were excited to listen to a Penny book in math. We used it as our starting point to get an overview on measurement and then went back to specific sections of the book to learn about each type of measurement. When Lisa used herself as a measuring tool, the students used their bodies as measuring tools. When Lisa used dog biscuits to measure Penny, we measured things in the room with dog biscuits. There are so many ways to do the things that Lisa does in the classroom and bring this book, and measuring, alive!

5-0 out of 5 stars A homework assignment that is fun and exciting!
This engaging book teaches the difference between standard and non-standard measurement. Lisa and Penny, her dog take us on a measuring adventure for a homework assignment. A classic for explaining such a difficult concept! My 2nd and 3rd graders loved it! A sure-fire way to invite and excite!

4-0 out of 5 stars I loved this"making measuring fun" book.
It was so exciting to find a book that focused on making math and measuring fun. What fun it is for kids to relate learning with their everyday surroundings. Children almost always have access to dogs in their house or neighborhood. After reading this book, my students voluntarily measured their dogs and everyday household items. They were learning and having fun at the same time thanks to Penny, the Boston Terrier. ... Read more

Sensing/measurement technologies are presented for a very wide variety of effects. Covers enough of the details to be useful to a real engineer but does not force the reader to wade though every possible issue to find out what is really critical in a design area.

5-0 out of 5 stars Authoritative book on Process Control
This book is a Must Have in your Engineering Library.
Liptak provides extensive detail for this to be your one-stop-shop for controls as well as a great introduction & encyclopedia for the rookies.
Hats off to Liptak and his team.
Just brace yourself for the 1,500 pages of information !! ;)

5-0 out of 5 stars This is like the bible for process control
The first edition was published in 1969, the second edition was released in 1982 (Volume 1) and 1985 (Volume 2). This latest edition comprises over 3000 pages between the 2 volumes. Each volume includes 8 chapters with many sub-headings per chapter.

The Flow Measurement (29 sub-headins) and Analytical Instrumentation (60 sub-headings) chapters were heavily revised for the 1995 edition of VOLUME 1. PLC's & Other Logic Devices (10 subheadings), DCS & Computer-based Systems (16 sub-headings) and Process Control Systems (27 sub-headings) were largely rewritten for the 1995 edition of VOLUME 2. Within each product-oriented sub-heading (eg. Magnetic Flowmeters, Infrared Analyzers, DCS Basic Packages), in addition to extensive treatment of the applicable technology, a comprehesive listing of manufacturers and typical price ranges is provided. Under Process Control Systems, a diverse group of applications (Airhandler Controls, Clean Room Controls, Distillation Advanced Controls, Compressor Controls, Reactor Control & Optimation and many others) is profiled. Throughout this handbook, process control is treated in the time-domain to minimize mathematical complications implicit in frequency-domain analysis. Its focus is the practicding engineer and explains most control phoenomena visually.

Over 250 contributing authors are listed, including many prestigious names immediately recognizable by process control professionals. Liptak personally authored a substantial number of revised and up-dated easlier contribution of pioneering practitioners. This opus is a tour de force.

Liptak is a long-time industrial consultant, teaches a graduate course in advanced process control at Yale and writes the widely-followed Lessons Learned feature in CONTROL magazine. He has also lectured at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government and been published on the editorial pages of the New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. ... Read more
