Contents: The Springer Handbook of Metrology and Testing is a comprehensive treatise of Metrology, the science of measurement, and of Testing, the technical procedure of determining characteristics of a given object, product or process. The Handbook is organized in five parts.Part A: Fundamentals of Metrology and Testing Part A describes the basic elements of metrology, the system which allows measurements made in different laboratories to be confidently compared worldwide. The process of making reliable measurements is analyzed along with quality issues of the measurement and testing procedures.Chap. 1 Introduction to Metrology and Testing Chap. 2 Metrology Principles and Organization Chap. 3 Quality in Measurement and Testing Part B: Chemical and Microstructural AnalysisPart B presents methods for the analysis of material composition and structure. Structure here includes both atomic and molecular arrangements and also microstructure and defect structures over larger scales. Chap. 4 Analytical Chemistry Chap. 5 Nanoscopic Architecture and MicrostructureChap. 6 Surface and Interface CharacterizationPart C: Materials Properties MeasurementPart C evaluates the methods of measuring the fundamental properties of materials. In addition to all aspects of mechanical properties, the methods of characterizing the thermal, electrical, magnetic and optical properties of materials important to their practical applications are described. Chap. 7 Mechanical PropertiesChap. 8 Thermal Properties Chap. 9 Electrical PropertiesChap. 10 Magnetic Properties Chap. 11 Optical PropertiesPart D: Materials Performance TestingPart D cores the testing of material performance in application conditions. This includes measurement of corrosion, friction and wear as well as biogenic impact on materials and more specific materials environment interactions. Evaluation of material performance and condition monitoring by nondestructive techniques and embedded sensors is also considered. Finally, experimental, deterministic and probabilistic methods for the characterization of safety and reliability are outlined. Chap. 12 CorrosionChap. 13 Friction and WearChap. 14 Biogenic ImpactChap. 15 Environmental InteractionsChap. 16 Nondestructive Testing and Reliability EvaluationPart E: Modeling and Simulation MethodsPart E presents important modeling and simulation methods that underline measurement procedures that rely on mathematical models to interpret complex experiments or to estimate properties that cannot be measured directly.Chap. 17 Molecular Dynamics SimulationChap. 18 Continuum Constitutive ModelingChap. 19 Finite Element and Finite Difference MethodsChap. 20 The CALPHAD MethodChap. 21 Phase Field ApproachChap. 22 Monte Carlo SimulationAbout the Authors.- Subject Index
