An online textbook geared toward mechanical engineers that teaches experimental design, data analysis, uncertainty concepts, and key measurement techniques.
This textbook was a lot of work, but I didn't do it alone. I would like to thank Nick and Manish at TopHat for getting me started down the road and keeping me going. My husband Rob provided many pots of coffee and a lot of useful proofreading - if there are any mistakes left, they are mine. Thanks to my son Tristan for creating the drawings that I couldn't get right, to my son Kieran for general encouragement, and to my assistant Bela for cleaning up the worst of my figures. Finally, thanks to the students who took the time and effort to beta test this for me: William Brown, Harry Brodsky, Ryan Turner, Christopher Murphy, Ashley Dodge, and Andy He. The book is definitely better for the input!
