An Introduction to Error Analysis

Author: John Robert Taylor
Publisher: Sterling Publishing Company
ISBN: 093570275X
Release Date: 1997-01-01
Genre: Mathematics

The need for error analysis is captured in the book's arresting cover shot - of the 1895 Paris train disaster. The early chapters teach elementary techniques of error propagation and statistical analysis to enable students to produce successful lab reports. Later chapters treat a number of more advanced mathematical topics, with many examples from mechanics and optics. End-of-chapter problems include many that call for use of calculators or computers, and numerous figures help readers visualise uncertainties using error bars.

Measurement Errors and Uncertainties

Author: S. Rabinowich
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 0387253580
Release Date: 2005-08-15
Genre: Computers

A practical reference on theory and methods of estimating measurement errors and uncertainty for both scientists and engineers in industry and experimental research. Building on the fundamentals of measurement theory, this book offers a wealth of practial recommendations and procedures. It differs from the majority of books in that it balances coverage of probabilistic methods with detailed information on the characterization, calibration, standardization and limitations of measuring instruments, with specific examples from both electrical and mechanical systems. In addition to a general updating to reflect current research, new material in this edition includes increased coverage of indirect measurements, with a new, simpler, more efficient method for this class of measurements.

Error Analysis with Applications in Engineering

Author: Zbigniew A. Kotulski
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9789048135707
Release Date: 2009-12-10
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Our intention in preparing this book was to present in as simple a manner as possible those branches of error analysis which ?nd direct applications in solving various problems in engineering practice. The main reason for writing this text was the lack of such an approach in existing books dealing with the error calculus. Most of books are devoted to mathematical statistics and to probability theory. The range of applications is usually limited to the problems of general statistics and to the analysis of errors in various measuring techniques. Much less attention is paid in these books to two-dimensional and three-dim- sional distributions, and almost no attention is given to problems connected with the two-dimensional and three-dimensional vectorial functions of independent random variables. The theory of such vectorial functions ?nds new applications connected, for example, with analysis of the positioning accuracy of various mechanisms, among them of robot manipulators and automatically controlled earth-moving and loading machines, such as excavators.

Measurements and Their Uncertainties

Author: Ifan Hughes
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780199566327
Release Date: 2010-07-01
Genre: Mathematics

This short book is primarily intended to be used in undergraduate laboratories in the physical sciences. No prior knowledge of statistics is assumed, with the necessary concepts introduced where needed, and illustrated graphically. In contrast to traditional treatments a combination of spreadsheet and calculus-based approaches is used. Error analysis is introduced at a level accessible to school leavers, and carried through to research level. The emphasisthroughout is on practical strategies to be adopted in the laboratory. Error calculation and propagation is presented though a series of rules-of-thumb, look-up tables and approaches amenable to computeranalysis.

Fills the need for an experimental physics text. There are three main sections of the text. The first is an introduction that offers valuable insights into the importance of the human element in physics and traces the course of its historical development. This section also explains the objectives of the physics laboratory and the skills you must master to maintain a ``Notebook'' and analyze data, and presents a general discussion of spectroscopy experiments. The second section discusses the unique and valuable role of the computer in the laboratory and explains how to use it; software is included with the text. The final section contains over twenty experiments, providing students with a broad introduction into the use of a variety of instruments for carrying out many different measurements.

Experimentation and uncertainty analysis for engineers

Author: Hugh W. Coleman
Publisher: Wiley-Interscience
ISBN: UOM:39015012054592
Release Date: 1989
Genre: Technology & Engineering

How to apply uncertainty analysis to experimentation. Describes how to incorporate uncertainty analysis into the planning, design, construction, debugging, execution, data analysis, & reporting stages of experimental programs. Estimation & propagation of both precision (random) errors & bias (fixed) errors are considered, as are procedures for handling small samples (which require use of the t-distribution), & practical cases in which bias errors in different variables are correlated. Treatment follows (and explains) the ANSI/ASME Standard on Measurement Uncertainty. Chapters 1 through 4 develop methodology for proper consideration of the uncertainty in measured variables & their propagation into the result of an experimantal program. Chapters 5 through 7 present additional considerations in the design of experiments, & illustrate application of the methods given in earlier chapters.
