Description - Experimentation, Validation, and Uncertainty Analysis for Engineers by Hugh W. Coleman
Helps engineers and scientists assess and manage uncertainty at all stages of experimentation and validation of simulations
Fully updated from its previous edition, Experimentation, Validation, and Uncertainty Analysis for Engineers, Fourth Edition includes expanded coverage and new examples of applying the Monte Carlo Method (MCM) in performing uncertainty analyses. Presenting the current, internationally accepted methodology from ISO, ANSI, and ASME standards for propagating uncertainties using both the MCM and the Taylor Series Method (TSM), it provides a logical approach to experimentation and validation through the application of uncertainty analysis in the planning, design, construction, debugging, execution, data analysis, and reporting phases of experimental and validation programs. It also illustrates how to use a spreadsheet approach to apply the MCM and the TSM, based on the authors' experience in applying uncertainty analysis in complex, large-scale testing of real engineering systems.
Experimentation, Validation, and Uncertainty Analysis for Engineers, Fourth Edition includes examples throughout, contains end of chapter problems, and is accompanied by the authors' website www.uncertainty-analysis.com.
Guides readers through all aspects of experimentation, validation, and uncertainty analysis
Emphasizes the use of the Monte Carlo Method in performing uncertainty analysis
Includes complete new examples throughout
Features workable problems at the end of chapters
Experimentation, Validation, and Uncertainty Analysis for Engineers, Fourth Edition is an ideal text and guide for researchers, engineers, and graduate and senior undergraduate students in engineering and science disciplines. Knowledge of the material in this Fourth Edition is a must for those involved in executing or managing experimental programs or validating models and simulations.

Author Biography - Hugh W. Coleman
Hugh W. Coleman, PhD, PE, is a Professor Emeritus of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
W. Glenn Steele, PhD, PE, is a Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering at Mississippi State University.
Coleman and Steele received the prestigious AIAA Ground Testing award for pioneering efforts in experimental uncertainty analysis with significant methodology advances and effective dissemination of knowledge through a straightforward engineering approach in their text and short courses. Steele was also awarded the ASME Performance Test Codes Medal in 2014. They have served on technical committees and on experimental uncertainty and validation standards committees associated with ASME, AIAA, SAE, ISO, and NATO AGARD. They are both Fellows of ASME and Associate Fellows of AIAA.
