This Springer Handbook of Metrology and Testing presents the principles of Metrology – the science of measurement – and the methods and techniques of  Testing – determining the characteristics of a given product – as they apply to chemical and microstructural analysis, and to the measurement and testing of materials properties and performance, including modelling and simulation. The principal motivation for this Handbook stems from the increasing demands of technology for measurement results that can be used globally. Measurements within a local laboratory or manufacturing facility must be able to be reproduced accurately anywhere in the world. The Commission of the European Union has expressed this as follows: There is no science without measurements, no quality without testing, and no global markets without standards.  The Handbook is organized in five parts. Part A: Fundamentals of Metrology and Testing. Part B: Chemical and Microstructural Analysis.
