- Liam Blunt, Taylor Hobson Professor of Surface Metrology at the University of Huddersfield, UK
This fully illustrated text explains the basic measurement techniques, describes the commercially available instruments and provides an overview of the current perception of 3-D topography analysis in the academic world and industry, and the commonly used 3-D parameters and plots for the characterizing and visualizing 3-D surface topography. It also includes new sections providing full treatment of surface characterization, filtering technology and engineered surfaces, as well as a fully updated bibliography.
Readership: Manufacturing engineers, mechanical engineers, tribologists, precision engineers in both industry and research, engineering libraries in research and industrial organisations, senior level undergraduates and masters students in manufacturing engineering
