## Principles of measurement systemsPrinciples of Measurement Systems provides a coherent and integrated approach to the topic by covering all the main techniques and devices used, together with the relevant theory and appications that the student needs to understand. The third edition of this highly popular and well-established textbook has been extensively updated and expanded to take account of recent developments in computing, solid-state electronics, optoelectronics and other areas of measurement technology. Divided into three parts, Section A investigates the general principles and system performance under static and dynamic conditions. The principles and characteristics of sensing, signal conditioning and processing, and data presentation are covered by Section B, while Section C examines current and emerging specialised techniques which have important industrial applications. |
