Handbook of Measurement Science: Elements of Change v. 3
This book forms the third part of the "Handbook of Measurement Science" series. While the first two volumes dealt with the theoretical and practical fundamentals of measurement science, this third volume concentrates upon the factors which are responsible for the emergence of new measurement systems. The legal aspects of measurement, the many uses of measurement systems and the recent advances in design and manufacturing techniques are all explored in depth. Emphasis is also given to the new technologies which are influencing measurement systems such as microelectronics, fibre optics and biosensors.
