Most books on ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation (NDE) focus either on its theoretical background or on advanced applications. Furthermore, information on the most current applications, such as guided wave techniques and acoustic microscopy, is scattered throughout various conference proceedings and journals. No one book has integrated these aspects into a treatment that is both self-contained and up-to-date. Ultrasonic Nondestructive Evaluation: Engineering and Biological Material Characterization brings together the principles, equations, and applications of ultrasonic NDE, both traditional and state-of-the-art, in a single, authoritative resource. It begins with the relevant fundamentals of mechanics, derives the basic equations of the mechanics of elastic wave propagation, and then, step-by-step, covers the advanced topics and applications of ultrasonic NDE that are at the forefront of today's research. These include engineering, biological, and clinical applications, such as structural health monitoring, the characterization of biological cells, and real-time blood flow measurement. Written in plain language by some of the world's leading experts, the chapters are filled with case studies, worked examples, and exercises that help make this book an outstanding resource for course work, as well as for reference. If you are looking for that one book that can bring you quickly up-to-speed on the principles, technologies, and latest applications of ultrasonic NDE, look no further than this book.

Ultrasonic methods have been very popular in nondestructive testing and characterization of materials. This book deals with both industrial ultrasound and medical ultrasound. The advantages of ultrasound include flexibility, low cost, in-line operation, and providing data in both signal and image formats for further analysis. The book devotes 11 chapters to ultrasonic methods. However, ultrasonic methods can be much less effective with some applications. So the book also has 14 chapters catering to other or advanced methods for nondestructive testing or material characterization. Topics like structural health monitoring, Terahertz methods, X-ray and thermography methods are presented. Besides different sensors for nondestructive testing, the book places much emphasis on signal/image processing and pattern recognition of the signals acquired.

The possibility of nondestructively characterizing the microstruc ture, morphology or mechanical properties of materials is certainly a fascinating subject. In principle, such techniques can be used at all stages of a material's life - from the early stages of processing, to the end of a structural component's useful life. Interest in the subject thus arises not only from a purely scientific point of view but is also strongly motivated by economic pressures to improve productivity and quality in manufacturing, to insure the reliability and extend the life of existing structures. The present volume represents the edited papers presented at the Second International Symposium on the Nondestructive Characterization of Materials, held in Montreal, Canada, July 21-23, 1986. The Proceedings are divided into eight sections, which reflect the multidisciplinary nature of characterizing materials nondestructively: Polymers and Composites, Ceramics and Powder Metallurgy, Metals, Layered Structures/Adhesive Bonds/Welding, Degradation/Aging, Texture/ Anisotropy, Stress, and New Techniques. Invited papers by R. Hadcock of Grumman Aircraft Systems, R. Cannon of Rutgers University, H. Yada of Nippon Steel and R. Bridenbaugh of Alcoa review respectively the processing of polymer matrix composites, ceramics, steel and aluminum, emphasizing the need for material property sensors to improve process and quality control. Two other invited papers, one by A. Wedgwood of Harwell and the other by P. Holler of the IzFP in Saarbrucken review state of the art techniques to characterize particulate matter and metals respectively.

Developing clean, sustainable energy systems is a pre-eminent issue of our time. Most projections indicate that combustion-based energy conversion systems will continue to be the predominant approach for the majority of our energy usage. Unsteady combustor issues present the key challenge associated with the development of clean, high-efficiency combustion systems such as those used for power generation, heating or propulsion applications. This comprehensive study is unique, treating the subject in a systematic manner. Although this book focuses on unsteady combusting flows, it places particular emphasis on the system dynamics that occur at the intersection of the combustion, fluid mechanics and acoustic disciplines. Individuals with a background in fluid mechanics and combustion will find this book to be an incomparable study that synthesises these fields into a coherent understanding of the intrinsically unsteady processes in combustors.

Complex, microstructured materials are widely used in industry and technology and include alloys, ceramics and composites. Focusing on non-destructive evaluation (NDE), this book explores in detail the mathematical modeling and inverse problems encountered when using ultrasound to investigate heterogeneous microstructured materials. The outstanding features of the text are firstly, a clear description of both linear and nonlinear mathematical models derived for modelling the propagation of ultrasonic deformation waves, and secondly, the provision of solutions to the corresponding inverse problems that determine the physical parameters of the models. The data are related to nonlinearities at both a macro- and micro- level, as well as to dispersion. The authors’ goal has been to construct algorithms that allow us to determine the parameters within which we are required to characterize microstructure. To achieve this, the authors not only use conventional harmonic waves, but also propose a novel methodology based on using solitary waves in NDE. The book analyzes the uniqueness and stability of the solutions, in addition to providing numerical examples.

Choosing the proper material testing technique is important not just for economic reasons; in many circumstances, it can save lives. Building on the common links among all types of material evaluation methods, Introduction to the Principles of Materials Evaluation presents a thorough examination of all types of destructive and nondestructive testing methods, focusing on the advantages and practical utility of each. It offers students the opportunity to learn the underlying physical principles, rather than a laundry list of techniques, to make sure they choose the right method. Developing an understanding of the way different types of energy interact with materials, the author first discusses relevant physical properties and how to determine them using mechanical, acoustic, thermal, optical, electrical, magnetic, and radiative energy. For the remainder of the book, he systematically examines the testing methods derived from these types of energy, how the methods work, how to identify defects and potential problems, and how to make decisions based on the results. Numerous illustrations, examples, and exercises help demonstrate the concepts and reinforce learning. The book also explores related issues such as choosing between destructive and nondestructive methods, the probability of defect detection, reliability and decision making, and lifetime extension. This text offers a unified and practical perspective on a wide variety of testing techniques and their effective use. Introduction to the Principles of Materials Evaluation is the ideal choice to give students a strong basis for making effective decisions and gain a firm understanding of materials testing.
