Handbook of Moire Measurement

Handbook of Moire Measurement

Author: C. A Walker Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/11/2019

Since its development in the late 1970s, the Moire Fringe method has become a standard technique for the measurement of the behavior of materials and structures. Edited by one of the co-inventors of the technique, the Handbook of Moire Measurement brings together a series of extended case studies from recognized experts in the field. The emphasis is on the application of the method to real situations, and presents a very readable account of the technique from the point of view of the user. As an introduction to the Moire technique and its variants, this book will be of interest to readers at all levels, but is particularly suitable for undergraduates and graduate students in physics, materials science, and structural and mechanical engineering.

Hybrid Simulation Theory, Implementation and Applications

Hybrid Simulation Theory, Implementation and Applications

Author: Victor (University of Colorado at Boulder, USA) Saouma Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 10/10/2019

Hybrid Simulation deals with a rapidly evolving technology combining computer simulation (typically finite element) and physical laboratory testing of two complementary substructures. It is a cost effective alternative to shaking table test, and allows for the improved understanding of complex coupled systems. Traditionally, numerical simulation and physical tests have been uncoupled and performed separately. In this simulation paradigm the coupled nature of the simulation allows for improved understanding, and more efficient design since the factor of safety does not have to be arbitrarily inflated to account for uncertainties of uncoupling. It is a multidisciplinary technology which relies heavily on control theory, computer science, numerical techniques and finds applications in aerospace, civil, and mechanical engineering.

Mechanical Variables Measurement - Solid, Fluid, and Thermal

Mechanical Variables Measurement - Solid, Fluid, and Thermal

Author: John G. Webster Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 27/09/2019

Accuracy in the laboratory setting is key to maintaining the integrity of scientific research. Inaccurate measurements create false and non-reproducible results, rendering an experiment or series of experiments invalid and wasting both time and money. This handy guide to solid, fluid, and thermal measurement helps minimize this pitfall through careful detailing of measurement techniques. Concise yet thorough, Mechanical Variables Measurement-Solid, Fluid, and Thermal describes the use of instruments and methods for practical measurements required in engineering, physics, chemistry, and the life sciences. Organized according to measurement problem, the entries are easy to access. The articles provide equations to assist engineers and scientists who seek to discover applications and solve problems that arise in areas outside of their specialty. Sections include references to more specialized publications for advanced techniques, as well. It offers instruction for a range of measuring techniques, basic through advanced, that apply to a broad base of disciplines. As an engineer, scientist, designer, manager, researcher, or student, you encounter the problem of measurement often and realize that doing it correctly is pivotal to the success of an experiment. This is the first place to turn when deciding on, performing, and troubleshooting the measurement process. Mechanical Variables Measurement-Solid, Fluid, and Thermal leads the reader, step-by-step, through the straits of experimentation to triumph.

LabVIEW Style Book, The (Paperback)

LabVIEW Style Book, The (Paperback)

Author: Peter A. Blume Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 21/11/2017

Most LabVIEW programmers are engineers, scientists, or technicians, including students pursuing degrees in these fields. They develop large applications in test and measurement, data acquisition, embedded control, scientific research, and process monitoring systems. Application development often involves a team approach. Often the applications are of a mission critical nature. If the LabVIEW programmer follows the guidelines in this book, his or her work will be efficient and robust, readable, easier to use, maintain, and review. This book has lots of practical information learned through years of professional LabVIEW development experience; including many source code illustrations, small code snippets as well as complete application examples; and incorporates newer features of LabVIEW versions 6.1 and soon to be released 8.0, which is a major new release.

Handbook of Measurements

Handbook of Measurements

Planning, measuring, and paying attention to details form the basis for all successful engineering operations. Measurements pervade everything we do and must be viewed from a systems perspective. A comprehensive all-encompassing guide to measurements, Handbook of Measurements: Benchmarks for Systems Accuracy and Precision focuses on high-level engineering computations essential for benchmarks and technical innovation. The book uses a systems framework and a technically rigorous approach to systems linking of measurements-an approach that sets it apart from other handbooks. The popular saying measure twice and cut once bears out the importance of measurements in human endeavors. This handbook covers both qualitative and quantitative topics of measurement. It opens with a chapter on the fundamentals of measurement and includes coverage of human-centric measurements, such as measurement of personnel productivity and contractor performance. It concludes with three appendices on measurement, references, conversion factors, equations, formulas, and statistics for measurement. It is well understood that humans cannot manage anything that cannot be measured. All elements involved in our day-to-day decision making involve some form of measurement, whether in the kitchen, retail, sports, service operations, geographical exploration, health care delivery, worker productivity, clothing design, engineering product design, or space craft launching. Measuring an attribute of a system and then analyzing it against some standard, some specification, some best practice, or some benchmark empower a decision maker to take appropriate and timely actions. This book gives you a guide for sustainable practices to ensure accurate measurements, helping you make decisions backed by metrics.
