Measurement, Data Analysis, and Sensor Fundamentals for Engineering and Science draws the reader in with its eloquent prose and gripping discussions of derivations.

Measurement, Data Analysis, and Sensor Fundamentals for Engineering and Science draws the reader in with its eloquent prose and gripping discussions of derivations. Personally, I often found myself re-reading passages time and time again for the sheer intellectual stimulation they provided. This text should be the lifeblood of any engineering library personal or professional and I cannot recommend it more highly.

Author Patrick F. Dunn, P.

Since its first publication, the text has been used annually by over 30 universities and colleges within the . both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Author Patrick F. is a professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering at the University of Notre Dame, where he has been a faculty member since 1985. Prior to 1985, he was a mechanical engineer at Argonne National Laboratory from 1976 to 1985 and a postdoctoral fellow at Duke University from 1974 to 1976.

Presenting the fundamental tools of experimentation that are currently used by engineers and scientists, Measurement and Data Analysis for Engineering and Science, Second Edition covers the basics of experimentation, hardware of experiments, and methods of data analysis. It also offers historical perspectives throughout. Updating and reorganizing its popular predecessor, this second edition makes the text much easier to follow and enhances the presentation with electronic material.

New to the Second Edition

Order of chapters now reflects the sequence of topics usually included in an undergraduate course Asterisked sections denote material not typically covered formally during lecture in an introductory undergraduate course More than 150 new problems, bringing the total to over 420 problems Supplementary website that provides unit conversions, learning objectives, review crossword puzzles and solutions, differential equation derivations, laboratory exercise descriptions, MATLABĀ® sidebars with M-files, and homework data files

Thorough and up to date, this edition continues to help students gain a fundamental understanding of the tools of experimentation. It discusses basic concepts related to experiments, measurement system components and responses, data analysis, and effective communication of experimental findings.

Ancillary materials for instructors are available on a CD-ROM and a solutions manual is available for qualifying instructors. More data available on www.nd.edu/~pdunn/www.text/measurements.html

Reviews:
  • Weetont
As another person mentioned, the book "appears" to be good and full of useful information. Then when you try to do the homework or reference anything from the book you're hosed. There are several examples where I would flip through every page in a chapter and find no references to the things the homework was questioning. I spent more time searching the Internet or watching my professors online help sessions where he "filled in the blanks" where the book was lacking because so many people in class were in the same boat. The book will introduce topics and barely scratch the surface and somehow the reader is supposed to make all sorts of inferences and do a lot of legwork on the side.

So if you have a professor who is really good at delving deep into topics and offers their lectures online this book will probably work to supplement their teaching. More likely your professor rambles through lectures, confuses the class more, and then this book will only serve to keep paperback books on your bookshelf from falling over.

The intellectual and emotional value of this text cannot be adequately expressed through this limited medium but I will endeavor nonetheless. Dunn, in his genius, has crafted what may be the most complete, organized, and articulate text on contemporary sensors and measurements. Measurement, Data Analysis, and Sensor Fundamentals for Engineering and Science draws the reader in with its eloquent prose and gripping discussions of derivations. Personally, I often found myself re-reading passages time and time again for the sheer intellectual stimulation they provided. This text should be the lifeblood of any engineering library personal or professional and I cannot recommend it more highly.

From a student perspective, this book is harder to read than a foreign language. It is full of equations that have no practical examples and you're stuck with the homework problems that you can't figure out. The examples given in the book do not correlate with the homework problems and I spend most of my time on the internet or sitting in my teacher's room trying to figure out what the book wants. It appears to be a book that assumes you remember everything that you ever learned in all of your classes. The book is too small and it seems that more information could have been included to help students better remember how to find certain values for a set of equations relating to a signal. If you can talk your teacher into excluding this book from the class and just teaching the concepts you'll be better off.

I was very pleased with this order, it came very quickly and was in perfect condition, it also came with the online access code.

I agree with the other comments about missing information and holes in the explanations. The example problems leave huge questions in how they got from referenced equations to their calculations. Sometimes the equations they have written don't even equate to the results they've calculated.
