Mechanical Measurements – Figliola, Beasley – 5th Edition


Figliola and Beasley’s Fifth Edition provides revised material for engineering with important updates on coverage of probability and statistics and uncertainty , including added material on Monte Carlo simulation, digital image , and with revised coverage of signal acquisition, conditioning, and processing.

Maintaining and upon its signature comprehensive coverage using focused examples to aid understanding, this text provides a timely and in-depth reference to the theory and the of engineering measurements, measurement system performance, and instrumentation.
