C. Amting Directorate General Information Society, European Commission, Brussels Under the 4th Framework of European Research, the European Systems and Soft ware Initiative (ESSI) was part of the ESPRIT Programme. This initiative funded more than 470 projects in the area' of software and system process improvements. The majority of these projects were process improvement experiments carrying out and taking up new development processes, methods and technology within the software development process of a company. In addition, nodes (centres of exper tise), European networks (organisations managing local activities), training and dissemination actions complemented the process improvement experiments. ESSI aimed at improving the software development capabilities of European enterprises. It focused on best practice and helped European companies to develop world class skills and associated technologies to build the increasingly complex and varied systems needed to compete in the marketplace. The dissemination activities were designed to build a forum, at European level, to exchange information and knowledge gained within process improvement ex periments. Their major objective was to spread the message and the results of experiments to a wider audience, through a variety of different channels. The European Experience Exchange ~UR~X) project has been one of these dis semination activities within the European Systems and Software Initiative.~UR~X has collected the results of practitioner reports from numerous workshops in Europe and presents, in this series of books, the results of Best Practice achieve ments in European Companies over the last few years.

Engineers, scientists, and technologists will find here, for the first time, a clear and comprehensive account of applications of ultrasonics in the field of process control. Using numerous examples of high-volume, low-cost applications, the author illustrates how the use of new transducer materials and designs, combined with microprocessor-based electronics, make technical and financial sense for concepts that only a few years ago might have been of interest only to academicians. Some of the important topics covered include coupling, acoustic isolation, transducer and sensor design, and signal detection in the presence of noise.

Almost every industry that use liquids and gas in any form has a need to measure flow, temperature and pressure. This text is a practical guide on how to accurately use these measuring instruments to control processes in manufacturing industries for food, beverages, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, oil, water and waste water, power, etc. With higher prices of raw materials and more severe requirements for safety and environmental issues, there is a growing demand to measure with higher precision. The book includes a number of practical examples from various industries. It discusses how to comply with safety standards regarding measurements and explains how legal control systems apply to measurements. The aim is to help any process industry reduce the risk of high costs and damage to both people and equipment.

Advances in Measurement and Control of Colloidal Processes compiles a selection of papers presented at the International Symposium on Colloid and Surface Engineering held in San Diego in August 1990. This book emphasizes practical measurement and exploitation of the principles of surface and interface science that embrace a wide range of industrial sectors. The topics are arranged according to specific measurement techniques or phenomena. The focus includes processing and characterization of aggregated materials; developments in instrumentation for monitoring and characterization of dispersions; controlled particle formation technologies; mineral and inorganic colloids-micro and macroscopic characterization methods; measurement and simulation of complex colloidal processes; and advances and problems in micron and sub-micron sizing techniques. This text is a useful reference for engineering students and industrial practitioners who conduct research on colloid and surface engineering.
