The fifth edition of this market leading book provides mechanical engineers with the most up to date coverage of mechanical measurements. Sound theory is highlighted by rich and current practical examples. New chapter opening learning objectives and outcomes explore the critical concepts that will be discussed. New and revised examples and problems clearly show how the information is applied in the field. Expanded discussions are included on measurements, equipment, and basic metrology. The DFT concept presentation is now simplified. More pictures have also been added to make the material easier to learn. Mechanical engineers will then better understand the elements for the design of measurement systems and measurement test plans.

From the Publisher:

Offers a thorough grounding in the theory of engineering measurements and measurement system performance. Combines measurement science and instrumentation with the design of measurement systems, emphasizing test plan design. Integrates the statistical nature of measured variables and uncertainty analysis and features numerous examples. This revised edition contains a new chapter on sampling concepts and data acquisition systems plus substantial additions on force, torque and power measurements. Includes refined sections on statistics and experimental design as well as a glossary of new terms.

From the Back Cover:

The new measure of excellence

Now revised to reflect the latest standards and advances, Figliola and Beasley’s Fourth Edition provides a timely and in-depth reference to the theory of engineering measurements, measurement system performance, and instrumentation. The authors show you how to develop, operate, and analyze measurement systems and report results. The text covers uncertainty analysis and mechanical measurements in one unified presentation, introducing you to the most powerful experimental tools available.

Features of the Fourth Edition:

  • Updated to reflect the newest ASME/ASNI Test Uncertainty nomenclature and ISO vocabulary.
  • Expanded treatment of mechatronics concepts (Chapter 12, Appendix C).
  • More practical use of operational amplifiers in discussion of signal conditioning circuits.
  • Labview files for self-tutorials on critical concepts and Matlab files for system analyses are available for download on the text’s website. www.wiley.com/college/figliola
  • Updated and revised problem sets, with an emphasis on design considerations.
