About this title


A practical reference on theory and methods of estimating measurement errors and uncertainty for both scientists and engineers in industry and experimental research. Building on the fundamentals of measurement theory, this 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 measuring instruments, with specific examples from both electrical and mechanical systems. In addition to a general updating to reflect 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.

From the Back Cover:

Measurement Errors and Uncertainties addresses the most important problems that physicists and engineers encounter when estimating errors and uncertainty.  Building from the fundamentals of measurement theory, the author develops the theory of accuracy of measurements and offers a wealth of practical recommendations and examples of applications.

This new edition covers a wide range of subjects, including:

- Basic concepts of metrology

- Measuring instruments characterization, standardization and calibration

-Estimation of errors and uncertainty of single and multiple measurements

- Modern probability-based methods of estimating measurement uncertainty

With this new edition, the author completes the development of the new theory of indirect measurements.  This theory provides more accurate and efficient methods for processing indirect measurement data.  It eliminates the need to calculate the correlation coefficient - a stumbling block in measurement data processing - and offers for the first time a way to obtain the confidence intervals.  In other words, this new theory provides means to  calculate a well-grounded estimate of measurement uncertainty for this complex but widely used type of measurements.



Acclaim for previous editions:

"Extremely useful to metrologists and to anyone interested in measurement errors"

"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)
