This first of two volumes examines measurement in five engineering disciplines: civil, environmental, mechanical, biomedical, and industrial. The contributors, mostly in the US but some in Europe, consider such topics as new and emerging technologies in structural health monitoring, the seismic testing of highway bridges, mobile source emissions testing, mass properties measurement, resistive strain measurement devices, pressure and velocity measurements, luminescent methods for measuring pressure, heat transfer measurements for non-boiling two-phase flows, human energy measurements, evaluating and selecting technology-based projects, and measuring organizational performance. The second volume covers materials properties and testing, instrumentation, and measurement standards.
