Measurement and Instrumentation introduces undergraduate engineering students to the measurement principles and the range of sensors and instruments that are used for measuring physical variables. Based on Morris's Measurement and Instrumentation Principles, this brand new text has been fully updated with coverage of the latest developments in such measurement technologies as smart sensors, intelligent instruments, microsensors, digital recorders and displays and interfaces. Clearly and comprehensively written, this textbook provides students with the knowledge and tools, including examples in LABVIEW, to design and build measurement systems for virtually any engineering application. The text features chapters on data acquisition and signal processing with LabVIEW from Dr. Reza Langari, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University. Early coverage of measurement system design provides students with a better framework for understanding the importance of studying measurement and instrumentation Includes significant material on data acquisition, coverage of sampling theory and linkage to acquisition/processing software, providing students with a more modern approach to the subject matter, in line with actual data acquisition and instrumentation techniques now used in industry. Extensive coverage of uncertainty (inaccuracy) aids students' ability to determine the precision of instruments Integrated use of LabVIEW examples and problems enhances students' ability to understand and retain content

Learn LabVIEW 2010 / 2011 Fast is written for users that have no experience with LabVIEW and only a limited understanding of automatic data acquisition. This primer will help you quickly become proficient using LabVIEW and confident in your ability to create applications in a wide variety of data acquisition topics. The goal of this primer is to introduce you to LabVIEW for hands-on use in automatic data acquisition and controls applications. This primer uses a number of practical real-life examples to provide both breadth and depth to the topic. The real-life examples used in this book demonstrate the value of LabVIEW, provide motivation for learning LabVIEW and make the examples fun to program. The first chapter of this book is designed to introduce you to the general concepts of LabVIEW through the development of a general program that acquires analog input data. The rest of the book introduces you to general concepts of data measurement and generation using LabVIEW’s DAQ Assistants, Express VIs and the configuration approach for automatic data acquisition. This primer has a unique modular structure that does not require the chapters to be completed in succession. After you complete the first chapter you are free to complete whichever sections you would like, in the order you would like to complete them, allowing you to focus on the topics that are of most interest to you. Each section in the primer introduces you to a new data acquisition topic. After an introduction to the topic, a program is developed within this topic using step by step instructions. Each chapter concludes with several additional practical application problems, where the data acquisition program is given, but the detailed steps to create the program are left to you. Example problems are provided for all modes of data acquisition, including analog input and output, digital input and output, and counters. For example, the problems show many aspects of analog input, such as hardware and software timing, buffered and triggered acquisition, and examples with common sensors, such as thermocouples and strain gages. Examples from other acquisition modes show how to drive many common output devices, such as stepper motors, servo motors, and DC motors, as well as software control programs, such as the PID compensator and pulse width modulation.

The focus of this unique book is to interface electrcial and mechanical engineering students with stand-alone instruments such as power supply, function generator, digital multimeter, oscilloscope, and computer data acquisition system with LabVIEW during laboratory experiments. They will be learning how to use electrical and mechanical devices such as transducers, accelerometers, thermistors, RTDs, and Bourden Gauges as instruments to measure physical quantities with a computer data acquisition system integrated with Labview. Students will be able to apply the theory in practice through the experiments. They will gain hands-on experience on the sophisticated measurement devices and be able to apply statistical analysis on the measured data to increase the accuracy of a measurement system. Experiments lead students to build circuits on breadboards to verify circuit laws, and use measurement sensors, such as pressure transducers and temperature measurement devices, to measure physical variables. The experience of using laboratory instruments and measurement sensors, the understanding of the working mechanism of these devices, and the processing of experimental data using statistical methods, will give students a solid foundation for their electrical and mechanical engineering laboratory courses.

Figliola and Beasley’s 6th edition of Theory and Design for Mechanical Measurements provides a time-tested and respected approach to the theory of engineering measurements. An emphasis on the role of statistics and uncertainty analysis in the measuring process makes this text unique. While the measurements discipline is very broad, careful selection of topical coverage, establishes the physical principles and practical techniques for quantifying many engineering variables that have multiple engineering applications. In the sixth edition, Theory and Design for Mechanical Measurements continues to emphasize the conceptual design framework for selecting and specifying equipment, test procedures and interpreting test results. Coverage of topics, applications and devices has been updated—including information on data acquisition hardware and communication protocols, infrared imaging, and microphones. New examples that illustrate either case studies or interesting vignettes related to the application of measurements in current practice are introduced.
