Traceable Temperatures: An Introduction to Temperature Measurement and Calibration (2nd Ed.)
Author: J.V.Nicholas and D.R.White
This book is a little different to most other measurement texts; it explains what goes wrong with temperature measurements, how to recognise when something is wrong, and how to fix it.
Traceable Temperatures focuses on four main temperature measurement techniques:
- Platinum resistance thermometry
- Liquid-in-glass thermometry
- Thermcouple thermometry
- Infra-red radiation thermometry
Its sections include operating principles, sources of error, choosing and using instruments, and calibration methods for each type of thermometer. It also provides the background material on measurement, uncertainty, calibration, accreditation, and the international measurement system, to support the understanding of the instruments and their use in making traceable temperature measurements.
