About

Features

  • begins with the basics common to all transducers and their elements; then covers the theory, fabrication, and application of the most popular, traditional, and contemporary devices; and concludes with a comprehensive overview of transducer schemes and principles organized in tables.
  • for those who deal with transducer design or applications, including practitioners and readers of electrical and mechanical engineering, industrial technology, physics, and chemistry.
  • reviews traditional as well as modern devices — with an emphasis on the description of transducer schemes and principles of operation, and methods of calculation.
  • introduces the most contemporary devices — e.g., resonant elements, silicon sensors, fiber-optic devices, etc.
  • describes specific fabrication processes.
  • presents a large number of engineering formulas along with various physical parameters organized in tables. The formulas are derived or clearly explained and are ready for calculations and analysis. A number of mathematical relationships — e.g., Bessel functions and tensor equations — are reduced to the form convenient for engineering calculations.
  • features a widely used mathematical analysis that opens the door for computer simulation in transducer design.
  • introduces necessary mathematical tools as they are needed.

Drawing together material that is usually scattered among various sources, this comprehensive and interdisciplinary volume covers the theory, design, fabrication and application of transducer elements and transducer structures — and features a wealth of practical formulas, calculations, schemes, various parameters organized in tables, “know how” recipes, and other material helpful in transducer design. KEY TOPICS: Begins with the basics common to all transducers and their elements; then covers the theory, fabrication, and application of the most popular, traditional, and contemporary devices; and concludes with a comprehensive overview of transducer schemes and principles organized in tables. MARKETS: For those who deal with transducer design or applications, including practitioners and students of electrical and mechanical engineering, industrial technology, physics, and chemistry.
