9780133374117: Introduction to Engineering Experimentation

Appropriate for undergraduate-level courses in Introduction to Engineering Experimentation found in departments of Mechanical Engineering Civil, and Electrical.

Wheeler and Ganji introduce many topics that engineers need to master in order to plan, design and document a successful experiment or measurement system. The text offers thorough discussions of topics often ignored or merely touched upon by other texts, including modern computerized data acquisition systems, electrical output measuring devices, and in-depth coverage of experimental uncertainty analysis.

From the Back Cover:

Based on the authors' industrial and academic experience, this book has been developed for an undergraduate course in engineering experimentation at the junior or senior level. The book can also be a useful reference for practicing engineers. The material covers the most common elements necessary to design, execute, analyze, and document an engineering experiment or to specify instrumentation for a production process.

Key Features of the Book
  • Introduction of the common nomenclature for measuring devices and presentation of the standard method to calibrate instruments
  • Characteristics of signal conditioners, including amplifiers and filters
  • Description of computerized data acquisition systems
  • Detailed discussion of the sampling rate theorem and signal analysis using Fourier series and Fourier transforms
  • Detailed coverage of the most common statistical techniques and probability distributions
  • Detailed coverage of the most recent standard for uncertainty analysis
  • Descriptions of the most common engineering measuring devices
  • Detailed coverage of the dynamic characteristics of measuring systems with practical applications
  • Common techniques for planning and documenting experiments
  • Extensive end-of-chapter problems based on realistic industrial practice

In addition to descriptions of common instruments, the book also includes common statistical techniques, data acquisition systems, and aspects of discrete sampling.

About the Author:

Anthony J. Wheeler received a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University in 1971. Dr. Wheeler is a licensed Professional Engineer in the State of California. He is currently Emeritus Professor of Engineering at San Francisco State University where he taught courses in Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics, and lectures and laboratories in Experimental Methods. His development activities in laboratories in experimentation were the precursors to the present textbook.

 

Professor Ahmad R. Ganji received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 1979. He is a professional engineer in the State of California. He has served as a faculty member at San Francisco State University since 1987, teaching courses in the areas of thermal-fluids, experimentation, and air pollution, and publishing over 40 works. Dr. Ganji has been the director of Industrial Assessment Center–a US DOE sponsored project since 1992. In this capacity he has managed hundreds of energy assessments of manufacturing facilities. As a consultant in energy efficiency projects, he has directed and managed numerous measurement and verification (M&V) projects that involve the formulation of detailed measurement protocols based on national and international standards.
