Theory and Practice of Force Measurement



The senior author, A. Bray, has been with the Institute of Metrology “G. Colonetti” in Turin, Italy, for many years, having established the first nucleus of the institute, which is today the Force Measurement Section. His colleagues G. Barbato and R. Levi are associated also with Politecnico di Torino. Reflective of the authors' experience, the major focus of the book is on high accuracy force measurement and calibration in standards laboratories. This relatively narrow focus limits the range of readership to which the book is addressed, but allows a high technical level in the treatment of those topics which are covered. Of the eight chapters, only the fifth, “Force-Measuring Devices,” would be of prime interest to the more general force-measurement community. The entire book, however, is of uniformly high quality and fills an important gap in the measurement literature.
