The most comprehensive and up-to-date reference work covering the scientific fundamentals and practical considerations for designing, developing and implementing measuring systems in a broad range of engineering and technological fields. Measuring systems lie at the heart of all science, engineering and technology, and are used to quantify physical phenomena such as temperature, pressure, voltage and current. Rapid advances in computing and electronics have enabled the development of highly sophisticated measuring systems that can be utilised across many industrial fields. The Handbook of Measuring System Design provides an authoritative and comprehensive reference that addresses a wide range of measurement-specific design and application problems in the fields of engineering and technology. Building on a thorough treatment of foundational topics the Handbook presents a modern, 'systems thinking' approach and covers many areas that have received little attention elsewhere (systems, safety, design, legal and artificial intelligence).
