Jones' Instrument Technology, Volume 1: Mechanical Measurements, Fourth Edition, provides a comprehensive discussion of the design, operation, and application of various instruments for different types of measurements. The material has been grouped by application, but supplemented by one or two qqtechniquesqq chapters. The text is primarily a qqstand aloneqq description of current practice. For the greatest part, readers will learn most from it simply by reading what it says itself. Because this book does not go into the greatest detail, most chapters feature a listing of more specialized books where particular subjects are dealt with more fully. The book covers instrumentation for measurements of flow, viscosity, length, strain, level and volume, vibration, force, density, pressure, vacuum, and particle size. It is aimed at a technician readership, as were earlier editions. Specialist instrument designers can find in this book a sound foundation on which they can build. Would-be graduate engineers who do not specialize in instrumentation will also find the broad coverage they need.Many of the unusual methods are less likely to be marketed for potential sales would not justify quantity manufacture. ... 3.6 Automatic gauging systems Tool- room and factory gauging has its roots in the use of manually-read measuring machines ... As an example piston manufacture for a car engine can require over twenty length parameters to be measured for each ... It has, in such instances become cost-effective to design and install automatic measuring machines that generate theanbsp;...
