Preface

The origin of metrology can be traced to the Industrial Revolution, which began in Western
Europe and the United States in the beginning of the 19th century. This period saw a transition
from manual to mechanized production and the setting up of factories to manufacture iron
and textiles. There was a paradigm shift from artisan-oriented production methods to mass
production. An artisan produced an article the same way a storage shelf is built in a closet—
by trial and error till the parts fit. Mass production called for division of labour and precise
definition of production tasks. Tasks became specialized, requiring skilled people who worked
on only a portion of the job, but completed it quickly and efficiently. The workers’ wages were
determined by a ‘piece-rate’ system. They were only paid for the good parts; thus it became
necessary to define what a good part was. This led to the design of inspection gauges and the
need for an inspector who could decide whether a part was good or not. In 1913, Henry Ford,
an American idustrialist, perfected the assembly line system to produce cars. In order to ensure
quality as well as high production rates, new methods of inspection and quality control were
initiated, which perhaps formed the basis of modern metrology.

Engineering metrology deals with the applications of measurement science in manufacturing
processes. It provides a means of assessing the suitability of measuring instruments, their
calibration, and the quality control of manufactured components. A product that is not
manufactured according to metrological specifications will have to incur heavy costs to comply
with the specifications later. Any compromise in quality creates rapid negative sentiments in
the market and the cost of recovering the original market position would be quite high. Today,
metrological error has a far greater impact on cost than in the past. Hence, an organization should
strive towards a zero-defect regime in order to survive in a highly competitive market. Ensuring
this aspect of manufacturing is the responsibility of a quality control engineer, who must be
completely familiar with the basics of measurement, standards and systems of measurement,
tolerances, measuring instruments, and their limitations.

The science of mechanical measurements has its roots in physics. It is an independent
domain of knowledge dealing with the measurement of various physical quantities such as
pressure, temperature, force, and flow.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Engineering Metrology and Measurements is a core subject for mechanical, production, and
allied disciplines in all the major universities in India. Although there are a few good books
available on metrology, the coverage of topics on mechanical measurements is either scanty or
superficial, necessitating students to refer to different books on mechanical measurements. This
book provides a comprehensive coverage of both metrology and mechanical measurements.

Divided into three parts, the first part of the book comprising Chapters 1–11, begins with a
comprehensive outline of the field of engineering metrology and its importance in mechanical
engineering design and manufacturing. The basic concepts of engineering standards, limits,
fits, and tolerances, for ensuring interchangeability of machine components are then discussed.

vi PREFACE

This is followed by a discussion on metrology of linear and angular measurements. Later in
the book, comparators, followed by the metrology of gears, screw threads, and surface finish
metrology are discussed. The chapter on miscellaneous metrology talks about laser-based
instrumentation and coordinate measuring machines. The last chapter in this section features
inspection methods and quality control.

The second part of the book comprising Chapters 12–16 focuses on mechanical measurements.
The coverage is restricted to measurement techniques and systems that are complementary to
engineering metrology. The topics covered are the basics of transducers and the measurement
of force, torque, strain, temperature, and pressure.

The third part of the book comprising Chapter 17 details nanometrology techniques
and instrumentation. Nanotechnology has opened a new world of scientific research and
applications. India has also joined the bandwagon and today, we see a phenomenal investment
in the research and development of this discipline, both in the government and private sectors.
There is abundant scope for pursuing higher studies both in India and abroad. We hope this
section on nanometrology will further stimulate the curiosity of the students and motivate them
to take up higher studies in this new and interesting field.

The book is designed to meet the needs of undergraduate students of mechanical engineering
and allied disciplines. The contents of this book have been chosen after careful perusal of
the syllabi of the undergraduate (B.E./B. Tech) and diploma programmes in India. The topics
are explained lucidly and are supported by self-explanatory illustrations and sketches. The
following are a few key features of the book.

KEY FEATURES

• Covers both metrology and mechanical measurements in one volume
• Offers guidelines for the proper use and maintenance of important instruments, such as

vernier callipers, autocollimators, slip gauges, and pyrometers
• Provides simple solved examples, numerical exercises in all relevant chapters, theoretical

review questions, and multiple-choice questions with answers at the end of every chapter
• Introduces the principles of nanometrology, a topic that has emerged from the popular

discipline of nanotechnology, in an exclusive chapter, highlighting its applications in the
production processes

• Includes an appendix containing 20 laboratory experiments with comprehensive procedures,
observation templates, and model characteristics, with select experiments presenting
photographs of the actual instruments to gain a visual understanding of the equipment used

CONTENTS AND COVERAGE

The book is divided into three parts: Engineering Metrology (Chapters 1–11), Mechanical
Measurements (Chapters 12–16), and Nano Impact on Metrology (Chapter 17). A chapter-wise
scheme of the book is presented here.

Chapter 1 deals with the basic principles of engineering metrology. It gives an overview of
the subject along with its importance. It also talks about general measurement, methods of
measurement, errors associated with any measurement, and the types of errors.

Chapter 2 sets the standards of measurement. These standards acts as a reference point for the
dimensional measurements.

Chapter 3 presents the limits, fits, and tolerances in design and manufacturing. An
understanding of these concepts helps in the interchangeability of manufactured components.

Chapter 4 discusses linear measurements that form one of the most important constituents of
metrology. The chapter throws light on surface plates and V-blocks, over which the measurand
is inspected. It discusses the scaled, vernier, and micrometer instruments in detail. The chapter
ends with a detailed explanation of slip gauges.

Chapter 5 elaborates on angular measurements. The fact that not all measurands can be
measured by linear methods stresses the significance of this topic. This chapter deals with
devices such as protractors, sine bars, angle gauges, spirit levels, and other optical instruments
used for angular measurements.

Chapter 6 aids in the comprehension of comparators. In several instances, a measurement may
be carried out on the basis of a comparison with the existing standards of measurements. This
chapter discusses the instruments that work on this common principle.

Chapter 7 explains optical measurements and interferometry. Optical measurement provides
a simple, accurate, and reliable means of carrying out inspection and measurements in the
industry. This chapter gives insights into some of the important instruments and techniques
that are widely used. Interferometers, which use laser as a source, are also discussed in detail.

Chapter 8 focuses on the metrological inspection of gears and screw threads. Gears are the
main elements in a transmission system. Misalignment and gear runout will result in vibrations,
chatter, noise, and loss of power. Therefore, one cannot understate the importance of precise
measurement and inspection techniques for gears. Similarly, the geometric aspects of screw
threads are quite complex and hence, thread gauging is an integral part of a unified thread
gauging system.

viii PREFACE

Chapter 9 analyses the metrology of surface finish. Two apparently flat contacting surfaces
are assumed to be in perfect contact throughout the area of contact. However, in reality, there
are peaks and valleys between surface contacts. Since mechanical engineering is primarily
concerned with machines and moving parts that are designed to precisely fit with each other,
surface metrology has become an important topic in engineering metrology.

Chapter 10 comprises miscellaneous metrology, which details certain measurement principles
and techniques that cannot be classified under any of the aforementioned dimensional
measurements. Coordinate measuring machines (CMM), machine tool test alignment,
automated inspection, and machine vision form the core of this chapter.

Chapter 11 lays emphasis on inspection and quality control. Inspection is the scientific
examination of work parts to ensure adherence to dimensional accuracy, surface texture,
and other related attributes. This chapter encompasses the basic functions of inspection and
statistical quality control—total quality management (TQM) and six sigma—the customer-
centric approaches towards achieving high quality of products, processes, and delivery.

Chapter 12 helps in understanding mechanical measurements. Mechanical measurements are
(physical) quantity measurements unlike the dimensional measurements discussed in Chapters
1–11.

Chapter 13 explains the principle and working of transducers. Transducers are generally defined
as devices that transform physical quantities in the form of input signals into corresponding
electrical output signals. Since many of the measurement principles learnt in earlier chapters
require a transducer to transmit the obtained signal into an electrical form, the study of
transducers is inevitable.

Chapter 14 elucidates the physical quantities of measurement: force, torque, and strain.

Chapter 15 illustrates the concept of temperature measurements—the principles involved
in temperature measurement and devices such as resistance temperature detector (RTD),
thermocouple, liquid in glass thermometer, bimetallic strip thermometers, and pyrometers.

Chapter 16 defines yet another important physical quantity, pressure. It helps us in getting
acquainted with instruments such as manometers, elastic transducers, and vacuum and high
pressure measurement systems.

Chapter 17 helps us appreciate the applications of nanotechnology in metrology. It explains
the basic principles of nanotechnology and its application in the manufacturing of nanoscale
elements that are made to perfection.

Appendix A introduces the universal measuring machine.

Appendix B simplifies the theory of flow measurement. Although a broader subset of mechanical
measurements, flow measurement is an independent field of study. Students are introduced to
this field in a typical course on fluid mechanics. Here we have tried to present only the basics
of flow measurement with a synopsis of measurement devices such as the orifice meter, venturi
meter, pitot tube, and rotameter.

PREFACE ix

Appendix C comprises 20 laboratory experiments with photographs of some of the equipment
used in measurement. The appendix also provides a step-by-step procedure to conduct the
experiments and an observation of results.

Appendix D presents the control chart associated with statistical quality control. These values
help understand certain problems discussed in Chapter 11.
