Book Description

The Mathematics of Measurement is a historical survey of the introduction of mathematics to physics and of the branches of mathematics that were developed specifically for handling measurements, including dimensional analysis, error analysis, and the calculus of quantities. Using an interdisciplinary approach and the insights provided by historical studies, Roche clarifies well-known difficulties in the mathematics of measurement, some of which have plagued scientists for over a century. The book is primarily intended for physicists and scientists from related disciplines such as mathematicians or meteorologists, however, the level and breadth of the treatment should also make it interesting for advanced undergraduates in these fields, as well as for historians and philosophers of science. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Useless without lecture notes
If you hope to use this book to get a general overview of measurement systems, then you may be alright, but if you want to be able to perform actual calculations, you should look elsewhere.

This book contains absolutely no worked examples. This leads the reader unable to do the end of chapter problems as the book does not contain detailed mathematical definitions of some of the most important elements contained within in the problems.

For instance, in chapter two, you are required to calculate the environmental coupling constants. Sadly, no where in the book does it actually explain how to do this.

In summary, Principles of Measurements Systems is an incomplete volume, which reads more like a 1st draft than a 3rd edition.

Very disappointing.

2-0 out of 5 stars quite challenging
I thought this book rather too challenging for the beginner and feel that unless you are pretty knowledgeable about the subject then there are other, simpler books that you should buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars it is a good book
the book is good, one part is introducted in the textbook of our university. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars only conversion reference you will ever need
Tired of looking through books to find the correct conversion factor to another unit? Well, so was I. Since I deal with international engineering contracts, this book saves a great deal of time. It is extremely well formatted and easy to use. This book not only has the usual units, but also Japanese, and ancient systems as well. You won't need any other book - ever. The author challenges you to find a unit not listed, and send it to him for inclusion in the next edition. That alone should give you an idea of how thorough it is! This is a must for any technical field. Well organized, and well worth the price of the book. A real bargin. Also, fun to read. It gives the approved units for various systems, and states which ones are on the phase-out. Good to know if you are doing technical writing, and need to keep your units within the standards listed. ... Read more

Book Description

The way electronic instruments are built is
changing in a deeply fundamental way. It is making an evolutionary leap to a new method of design that is being called synthetic instruments. This new method promises to be the most significant advance in electronic test and instrumentation since the introduction of automated test equipment (ATE). The switch to synthetic instruments is beginning now, and it will profoundly affect all test and measurement equipment that will be developed in the future.
Synthetic instruments are like ordinary instruments in that they are specific to a particular
measurement or test. They might be a voltmeter that measures voltage, or a spectrum analyzer
that measures spectra. The key, defining difference is this: synthetic instruments are implemented
purely in software that runs on general purpose, non-specific measurement hardware with a high
speed A/D and D/A at its core. In a synthetic instrument, the software is specific; the hardware is generic. Therefore, the "personality" of a synthetic instrument can be changed in an instant. A
voltmeter may be a spectrum analyzer a few seconds later, and then become a power meter, or network analyzer, or oscilloscope. Totally different
instruments are implemented on the same hardware and can be switched back and forth in the blink of an eye.
This book explains the basics of synthetic instrumentation for the many people that will need
to quickly learn about this revolutionary way to design test equipment. This book attempts to
demystify the topic, cutting through, commercial hype, and obscure, vague jargon, to get to the
heart of the technique. It reveals the important basic underlying concepts, showing people how the synthetic instrument design approach, properly executed, is so effective in creating
instrumentation that out performs traditional approaches to T&M and ATE being used today.

* provides an overview and complete introduction to this revolutionary new technology

* enables equipment designers and manufacturers to produce vastly more functional and flexible instrumentation;it's not your father's multimeter!

* accompanying CD-ROM includes demo software from major vendors and data sheets for specialist ATE manufacturers

5-0 out of 5 stars Meticulous, concise and to the point.
Typical of McGovern's style, this book is written in a very concise and meticulous manner. Despite the very many excellent publications available addressing the subject area of thermodynamics, a lot of the language and terminology adopted tends to be outdated. McGovern is consistent, unambiguous and up-to-date in his choice of language. His case studies are well chosen, well worked and serve to reinforce the subject matter. The summaries and practical tips are most useful.

The author argues in favour of adopting the new convention of taking work inputs as positive. Whilst people familiar with the old convention might find this a good enough reason for not using the book, they shouldn't be deterred. Personally, I feel that the use of a formal sign convention (old or new) for heat and work should be de-emphasised. Instead, students might benefit more if they were encouraged to adopt a more intuitive approach to assessing energy interactions.

The introduction of "exergy analysis" as a topic in current thermodynamics textbooks is most welcome. McGovern rightly devotes a section of his book to the treatment of this important topic. To reinforce the idea that exergy is destroyed during an actual process however, I feel that the author might have incorporated the "exergy balance" concept to conclude his treatment of this subject.

Nevertheless, the book is very easy to read and certainly achieves its stated objectives in providing a rigorous treatment of the subject matter with limited material. Anyone reading this book will definitely gain something from it. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Review for the Sensors Handbook
The sensors handbook is mainly a collection of 75 research articles. The articles describe research on various sensor systems in industry and academia. For example, chapters 11-15 are review papers on MEMS research in a few US universities, and Chapter 27 is about research on a networked smart sensor system. The information in these papers say little about design of sensors and sensor systems, seletion and specs. of sensors, setting up sensors, and advantages/disadvantages of various sensors. In summary, I found that Sensors Handbood did not contain the kind of information I expected to find in such a handbook and therefore it was not very useful. ... Read more
