Measurement and Instrumentation Systems
This book provides a coherent and integrated approach to measurement and instrumentation designed for students following HND, HNC, BEng and BSc courses in mechanical engineering, electrical/electronic engineering, chemical engineering, instrumentation and control, and applied physics. As well as being an accessible introduction to this important and wide-ranging subject, Bolton's book also provides a comprehensive coverage which will be of use for reference and revision, and plenty of problems at the end of each chapter.
