Until now, anyone conducting industrial combustion tests had to either rely on old methods, go scurrying through the literature to find proven applicable methodologies, or hire top-shelf consultants such as those that work for cutting-edge companies like John Zink. Manufacturers can no longer take industrial combustion for granted. Air and noise pollution standards must be met, and today no one can afford the inefficient use of fuel. Drawing on three decades of experience, Charles Baukal Jr. is not only aware of the best methods but is responsible for designing and implementing a number of them, owning 11 patents of his own, as well as having hundreds of articles to his credit. Providing busy engineers with a convenient reference that gives them state-of-the-art techniques without having to cull through the literature, this practical compendium: Demonstrates how to conduct meaningful experiments with industrial scale combustion equipment Illustrates a number of methods through case studies Includes detailed pictures, figures, graphs, and tables, to explain processes and make sense of the data Presents valuable information on advanced diagnostics, burner and flare testing, and testing in combustors, including techniques for a variety of kilns, furnaces, and boilers Written to make better practioners out of academicians and better scholars out of hands-on engineers, this unique volume teaches academics how to work at the large scales associated with industrial combustion, while also teaching engineers the rigorous approach needed for successful modeling.

Fundamentals of Sensors for Engineering and Science is a practical analysis of sensors and measurement, designed to help readers make informed decisions when selecting an appropriate sensor for a given application. Spurred by a growing demand for information on the evolution of modern sensors, this book evaluates current applications to illustrate their wide range of uses, as well as the many ways they can be classified. Emphasizing the underlying physics involved, author Patrick Dunn reviews the sensors commonly used in engineering and science. He also covers the sensors of the human body, as well as biomimetic sensors used to simulate human functions. The book organizes and describes contemporary examples of manmade sensors based on their core physical principles. Fundamentals—including scaling considerations involved in micro- and nano-sensor development and uncertainty—are introduced at the beginning of the text. A companion to the popular Measurement and Data Analysis for Engineering and Science, Second Edition, this book will benefit instructors, industry professionals, and anyone else with an interest in this burgeoning field. Clarifying the primary role and key characteristics of sensors in engineering and science, this text includes a wealth of examples and chapter problems, and it also provides online links to updated ancillary materials.

KEY BENEFIT: An up-to-date, practical introduction to engineering experimentation. Introduction to Engineering Experimentation, 3E introduces many topics that engineers need to master in order to plan, design, and document a successful experiment or measurement system. The text offers a practical approach with current examples and thorough discussions of key topics, including those often ignored or merely touched upon by other texts, such as modern computerized data acquisition systems, electrical output measuring devices, and in-depth coverage of experimental uncertainty analysis. The book includes theoretical coverage and selected applications of statistics and probability, instrument dynamic response, uncertainty analysis and Fourier analysis; detailed descriptions of computerized data acquisition systems and system components, as well as a wide range of common sensors and measurement systems such as strain gages and thermocouples. Worked examples are provided for theoretical topics and sources of uncertainty are presented for measurement systems. For engineering professionals looking for an up-to-date, practical introduction to the field of engineering experimentation.

Helps engineers and scientists assess and manage uncertainty at all stages of experimentation and validation of simulations Fully updated from its previous edition, Experimentation, Validation, and Uncertainty Analysis for Engineers, Fourth Edition includes expanded coverage and new examples of applying the Monte Carlo Method (MCM) in performing uncertainty analyses. Presenting the current, internationally accepted methodology from ISO, ANSI, and ASME standards for propagating uncertainties using both the MCM and the Taylor Series Method (TSM), it provides a logical approach to experimentation and validation through the application of uncertainty analysis in the planning, design, construction, debugging, execution, data analysis, and reporting phases of experimental and validation programs. It also illustrates how to use a spreadsheet approach to apply the MCM and the TSM, based on the authors’ experience in applying uncertainty analysis in complex, large-scale testing of real engineering systems. Experimentation, Validation, and Uncertainty Analysis for Engineers, Fourth Edition includes examples throughout, contains end of chapter problems, and is accompanied by the authors’ website www.uncertainty-analysis.com. Guides readers through all aspects of experimentation, validation, and uncertainty analysis Emphasizes the use of the Monte Carlo Method in performing uncertainty analysis Includes complete new examples throughout Features workable problems at the end of chapters Experimentation, Validation, and Uncertainty Analysis for Engineers, Fourth Edition is an ideal text and guide for researchers, engineers, and graduate and senior undergraduate students in engineering and science disciplines. Knowledge of the material in this Fourth Edition is a must for those involved in executing or managing experimental programs or validating models and simulations.

The dramatic developments in the field of experimental uncertainty analysis over the last ten years have led to sweeping changes in applications, resulting in a new international experimental uncertainty standard. Now, in the only manual available with direct applications to the design and analysis of engineering experiments, respected authors Hugh Coleman and Glenn Steele have thoroughly updated their bestselling title to include the new methodologies being used by the United States and international standards committee groups. Along with several new examples, this latest edition includes new material on: * The utilization of Uncertainty Magnification Factors (UMFs) and Uncertainty Percentage Contributions (UPCs) in the planning and early design phases of experiments * Refined procedures for accounting for the effects of correlated bias errors * Improved methods for accounting for the effects of asymmetric systematic uncertainties * The importance of (previously ignored) correlated random errors with an example illustrating how to account for them * Uncertainties in comparative testing * Uncertainties in the comparison of data and predictions (code validation) * Uncertainty analysis by direct Monte Carlo simulation * A new method to determine regression uncertainties that properly accounts for both random and systematic uncertainties With a step-by-step approach, engineering students as well as practicing professional engineers who analyze or design experiments will find Experimentation and Uncertainty Analysis for Engineers, Second Edition to be an invaluable reference tool.
