Title:The Quality of Measurements [electronic resource] A Metrological Reference
Author(s): A.E Fridman
Date:2012
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book provides a detailed discussion and commentary on the fundamentals of metrology. The fundamentals of metrology, the principles underlying the design of the SI International System of units, the theory of measurementerror, a new methodology f or estimation of measurement accuracy based on uncertainty, and methods for reduction of measured results and estimation of measurement uncertainty are all discussed from a modern point of view. The concept ofuncertainty is shown to be consistent with the classical theory of accuracy. The theory of random measurement errors is supplemented by a very general description based on the generalized normal distribution systematic instrumentalerror is described in terms of a methodology for normalizing the metro logical characteristics of measuring instruments. A new international system for assuring uniformity of measurements based on agreements between nationalmetrological institutes is discussed, in addition to the role and procedure for performance of key com parisons between national standards. The conclusion describes a new methodology for assurance of measurement accuracy (based on theprovisions contained in the ISO 5725-series standards) that is now becoming more and more common around the world. All of th e theoretical statements and calculation methods are illustrated using examples. This book will be of interestto personnel working in government metrological services (or in the metrological services of legal entities), and to specialists who use measurin g instruments or make use of measured data in their daily activities It will be useful tostudents at technical universities when studying the academic disciplines of Metrology, Standardization, and Certification Metrology and Measurement Assurance and Met rology and Measuring Instruments

Title:Quality and Reliability of Large-Eddy Simulations [electronic resource]
Author(s): Johan Meyers
Bernard J Geurts
Pierre Sagaut
Date:2008
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Computational resources have developed to the level that, for the first time, it is becoming possible to apply large-eddy simulation (LES) to turbulent flow problems of realistic complexity. Many examples can be found intechnology and in a variety of natural flows. This puts issues related to assessing, assuring, and predicting the quality of LES into the spotlight. Several LES studies have been published in the past, demonstrating a high level ofaccuracy with which turbulent flow predictions can be attained, without having to resort to the excessive requirements on computational resources imposed by direct numerical simulations. However, the setup and use of turbulent flowsimulations requires a profound knowledge of fluid mechanics, numerical techni ques, and the application under consideration. The susceptibility of large-eddy simulations to errors in modelling, in numerics, and in the treatment ofboundary conditions, can be quite large due to nonlinear accumulation of different contributions over t ime, leading to an intricate and unpredictable situation. A full understanding of the interacting error dynamics in large-eddysimulations is still lacking. To ensure the reliability of large-eddy simulations for a wide range of industrial users, the devel opment of clear standards for the evaluation, prediction, and control of simulation errors in LES issummoned. The workshop on Quality and Reliability of Large-Eddy Simulations, held October 22-24, 2007 in Leuven, Belgium (QLES2007), provided one of the fi rst platforms specifically addressing these aspects of LES
