Instruments and Measurements: Chemical Analysis, Electric Quantities, Nucleonics and Process Control, Volume I covers the proceedings of the Fifth International Instruments and Measurements Conference, held in Stockholm, Sweden on September 13-16, 1960.
Separating 120 lectures into 49 chapters, this book is divided into five sections. The first section discusses the advances in automatic process control instrumentation, including developments in pneumatic, electropneumatic, and electrohydraulic control. This section deals also with the stability, optimization, and use of fast digital computer for process control applications. The subsequent two sections consider the physical methods of chemical analysis and nuclear instrumentation. These sections survey the developments in gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, and quadrupole mass filter for chemical analysis. These topics are followed by discussions on some structural and analytical applications of high resolution nuclear magnetic resonance. The remaining sections explore the measurements of electric and magnetic quantities, as well as the reactor control. These sections are devoted to X-ray methods, UV spectroscopy, turbidimeter, and infrared techniques.
Analytical chemists, process and instrumentation engineers, and researchers in instruments, chemical analysis, and process control fields will find this book invaluable.
