Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA (23 January 2017) - The International Society of Automation (ISA) today announces the fifth edition release of Measurement Uncertainty: Methods and Applications by Ronald. H. Dieck.
Dieck, a former ISA president and a recognized expert in measurement uncertainty analysis, says an updated edition of his popular book was needed in light of ongoing technological advances and improvements in measurement uncertainty methods and applications.
"There's still a need for a well-organized, up-to-date book for properly analyzing the uncertainty of test and experimental data, particularly given the pace of technological change," Dieck explains. "This new edition features a significant amount of new and enhanced content, ranging from new appendices to more detailed examples of uncertainty analysis and computation."
The book's new appendices: include condensed descriptions of the basics of uncertainty analysis, pinpoint the advantages and disadvantages of several uncertainty models used throughout the world, and provide key equations for uncertainty analysis-all in an easy-to-use format.
