Figliola and Beasley’s 6th edition of Theory and Design forMechanical Measurements provides a time-tested and respectedapproach to the theory of engineering measurements. Anemphasis on the role of statistics and uncertainty analysis in themeasuring process makes this text unique. While the measurementsdiscipline is very broad, careful selection of topical coverage,establishes the physical principles and practical techniques forquantifying many engineering variables that have multipleengineering applications.
In the sixth edition, Theory and Design for Mechanical Measurementscontinues to emphasize the conceptual design framework forselecting and specifying equipment, test procedures andinterpreting test results. Coverage of topics, applications anddevices has been updated—including information on dataacquisition hardware and communication protocols, infrared imaging,and microphones. New examples that illustrate either case studiesor interesting vignettes related to the application of measurementsin current practice are introduced.
