About the Book :
This edition was written to address the changes that have occurred in the engineering measurements field since 1984 and to better integrate a course in "measurements" with other educational objectives in the engineering curricula. The text provides detailed coverage of the many aspects of digital instrumentation currently being employed in industry for engineering measurements and process control. Heavy emphasis is placed on electronics measurements. Every chapter has been updated; three new chapters have been added.
Interesting Facts :
Emphasis on electronic measurements, basics of electronic circuits. New problems throughout text. Material on the basics of electronic circuits presents the basic fundamental principles of electronics for better comprehension of the operation of instrument systems. Detailed model of piezoelectric sensor behavior and built-in voltage follower circuit description helps the engineering student understand the implications of how the sensor is connected to the outside world for signal recording purposes. Analysis of Vibrating Systems introduces the pitfalls that can cause misinterpretation of data.
