    Measurement Uncertainty, Fifth Edition

    By Ronald H. Dieck

    Choose format:

    An entire course, as well as an excellent desk reference, this edition presents students and professionals in engineering and science with a comprehensive tutorial of measurement uncertainty methods in a logically categorized and easy to use format.

      What is new? 

    • More detailed examples of uncertainty computation
    • Discussion of new uncertainty technologies in U.S. and international standards, and their strengths and weaknesses
    • A discussion of the rationale for the choice of the uncertainty model, ISO or ASME
    • An abbreviated approach to uncertainty estimation
    • An improved accumulation of the important equations in uncertainty analysis

    This edition also focuses on:

    • Basics of the measurement uncertainty model
    • Nonsymmetrical, systematic standard uncertainties
    • Random standard uncertainties; the use of correlation
    • Curve-fitting problems
    • Probability plotting
    • Combining results from different test methods
    • Calibration errors
    • Uncertainty propagation for both independent and dependent error sources

    The author draws on years of experience in the industry to direct special attention to the problem of developing confidence in uncertainty analysis results and using measurement uncertainty to select instrumentation systems.

    There are many ways to conduct an uncertainty analysis. One way is illustrated in the Uncertainty Analysis Template, an Excel spreadsheet in Appendix N of Measurement Uncertainty, Fifth Edition.

    The Uncertainty Analysis Template is designed as a starting point for engineers and scientists to use to perform an uncertainty analysis. It contains the major equations and summations used in estimating measurement uncertainty, errors and uncertainties that affect results, ASME random and systematic categories, and ISO pedigree categories Type A (from statistical analysis) and Type B (obtained other ways).
