CAIRO BOOKS's Description
This Third Edition helps you assess and manage uncertainty at all stages of
experimentation and validation of simulations
In this greatly expanded Third Edition , the acclaimed Experimentation,
Validation, and Uncertainty Analysis for Engineers guides readers through the
concepts of experimental uncertainty analysis and the applications in
validating models and simulations, solving problems experimentally, and
characterizing the behavior of systems. This Third Edition presents the
current, internationally accepted methodology from ISO, ANSI, and ASME
standards to cover the planning, design, debugging, and execution phases of
experiments. Cases in which the experimental result is determined only once or
when the result is determined multiple times in a test are addressed and
illustrated with examples from the authors' experience. The important practical
cases in which multiple measured variables share correlated errors are
discussed in detail, and strategies to take advantage of such effects in
calibrations and comparative testing situations are presented. The methodology
for determining uncertainty by Monte Carlo analysis is described in detail.
Knowledge of the material in this Third Edition is a must for those involved
in executing or managing experimental programs or validating models, codes, and
simulations. Professionals and students in disciplines spanning the full range
of engineering and science will find this book an essential guide.
