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.

The textbook also includes updated coverage on probability and statistics and uncertainty analysis to include new international and US standards on the classification of errors in measurements. Readers can also learn how to utilize software tools with access to LABVIEW files for self-tutorials on critical concepts and MATLAB files for system analysis.

Useful engineering textbook March 30, 2011
I would recommend this textbook to every beginning engineer and experimentalist. The textbook is full of examples, derivations, and lots of questions. It does require that you actually read it to get anything out of it, but the best feature is the online material, with MATLAB programs, videos, and additional material. The shipping with great it was a good experience I had with ecampus.
