Units

. A measuring instrument transforms a measurand, i.e., a physical variable to be measured, to provide comprehensible output. Measuring instruments are designed to generate a fixed and reproducible magnitude of the measurand which is expressed by a number followed by the matching unit, e.g., a length of 2.5 m. Basic principles of monitoring and evaluation 4 3. PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS AND PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT Performance management (or results-based management) is a strategy designed to achieve changes in the way organizations operate, with improving performance (better results) at the core of the system.

Back Cover

Measurement is an essential activity in every branch of technology and science and as such forms part of degree, diploma and certificate courses in engineering and applied science.

The fourth edition of this respected and successful text has been extensively extended and updated to include new developments in measurement devices and technology. It provides a coherent and integrated approach to the topic, covering main techniques and devices used, together with relevant theory and applications, for both mechanical and electronic systems.

It is divided into three parts, covering the general principles, followed by the typical elements of measurement systems, and then moving on to current and emerging specialised techniques which have important industrial applications.

Key features:

  • New chapter on Intelligent Multivariable Measurement Systems
  • Incorporates increased coverage on solid state sensors
  • New material on structure, software and applications of microcontrollers
  • A completely revised chapter on Data Presentation
  • Additional problems have been added at a basic and introductory level

This book is aimed at students taking modules in measurement and instrumentation as part of degree courses in instrumentation/control, mechanical, manufacturing, electrical, electronic, chemical engineering and applied physics as well as students on HNC/HND and foundation degree courses on measurement and instrumentation. This text is also suitable for professional and technical engineers working in the measurement and control discipline. Obs macbook pro (13-inch late 2011).

About the book

Description

'Measurement and Instrumentation Principles' is the latest edition of a successful book that introduces undergraduate students to the measurement principles and the range of sensors and instruments that are used for measuring physical variables. Completely updated to include new technologies such as smart sensors, displays and interfaces, the 3rd edition also contains plenty of worked examples and self-assessment questions (and solutions). In addition, a new chapter on safety issues focuses on the legal framework, electrical safety and failsafe designs, and the author has also concentrated on RF and optical wireless communications. Fully up-to-date and comprehensively written, this textbook is essential for all engineering undergraduates, especially those in the first two years of their course.
