The Measurement, Instrumentation and Sensors Handbook

John G. Webster, ed.


2608 pages

The Measurement Instrumentation and Sensors Handbook describes the use of instruments and techniques for practical measurements required in engineering, physics, chemistry, and the life sciences. The book examines:

Organized according to the measurement problem, each section addresses the different ways of making a measurement for a given variable. Chapters present information on three levels:

The Measurement, Instrumentation and Sensors Handbook provides a graded level of difficulty from start to finish, serving the reference needs of the broadest group of readers. Edited by one of the more noted instrumentation experts in the world, the book contains nearly 150 contributions, covering all aspects on the design and implementation of various instrumentation.

"…concise and useful reference covering a wide range of measurement, instrumentation, and sensor topics…With 14 chapters filled with a wealth of useful information, this comprehensive reference will be a valuable addition to anyone who works with instrumentation and measurements."
--John J. Shea, IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, Vol. 16, No. 4
