This book is an introduction to many of the topics that an engineer needs to master in order to successfully design experiments and measurement systems. In addition to descriptions of common measurement systems, the book describes computerized data acquisition systems, common statistical techniques, experimental uncertainty analysis, and guidelines for planning and documenting experiments. It should be noted that this book is introductory in nature. Many of the subjects covered in a chapter or a few pages here are the subjects of complete books or major technical papers. Only the most common measurement systems are included—there exist many others that are used in practice. More comprehensive studies of available literature and consultation with product vendors are appropriate when engaging in a significant real-world experimental program. It is to be expected that the skills of the experimenter will be enhanced by more advanced courses in experimental and measurement systems design and practical experience.
The design of an experimental or measurement system is inherently an interdisciplinary activity. For example, the instrumentation and control system of a process plant might require the skills of chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, and computer engineers. Similarly, the specification of the instrumentation used to measure the earthquake response of a large structure will involve the skills of civil, electrical, and computer engineers. Based on these facts, the topics presented in this book have been selected to prepare engineering students and practicing engineers of different disciplines to design experimental projects and measurement systems.
