Summary: This market leader offers the broadest range of experimental measurement techniques available for mechanical and general engineering applications. Offering clear descriptions of the general behavior of different measurement techniques, such as pressure, flow, and temperature, the text emphasizes the use of uncertainty analysis and statistical data analysis in estimating the accuracy of measurements. Edition/Copyright: 7TH 01
New to This Edition 10px;margin:0px;'> A new chapter, ''Design of Experiments,'' integrates the discussions of the text to offer an overall protocol for experiment design. Instead of focusing on ''statistical design,'' the author presents a more general and comprehensive consideration of time restraints and presentation requirements. The chapter contains check list tables for a design ''protocol'' as well as five diverse case study examples to illustrate the use of protocol--with examples ranging from convection coefficient determination to a ''legal fire.'' 10% more problems and the Instructors Solutions Manual will be typeset for the first time. Updated and expanded treatment of data analysis and report writing details methods for displaying graphics, and use of trendlines and correlations.
- Maintaining its thorough coverage of thermal-fluid measurement techniques, the text continues to emphasize experimental uncertainties as essential elements in experiment design, execution, and instrument selection.
