About this Textbook

This book focuses both on the basics and more complex topics in mechanical measurements such as measurement errors & statistical analysis of data, regression analysis, heat flux, measurement of pressure, and radiation properties of surfaces. End of chapter problems, solved illustrations, and exercise problems are presented throughout the book to augment learning. It is a useful reference for students in both undergraduate and postgraduate programs.
