Summary

The Handbook of Engineering Measurements is encyclopedic in scope, beyond anything currently available on the market. The handbook spans several disciplines: Civil and Environmental Engineering, Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering, and Industrial Engineering in Volume I; and Materials Properties and Testing, Instrumentation, and Measurement Standards in Volume II. Volumes will be sold both separately and as a set, therefore maximizing potential to both institutions and individuals.
