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.

John P. Bentley is Emeritus Professor of Measurement Systems at the University of Teesside
