Most books on nondestructive evaluation (NDE) focus either on the theoretical background or on advanced applications. Bridging the gap between the two, Ultrasonic and Electromagnetic NDE for Structure and Material Characterization: Engineering and Biomedical Applications brings together the principles, equations, and applications of ultrasonic and

About the Editor

Tribikram Kundu is a professor in the Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at the University of Arizona in Tucson. Dr. Kundu has made significant and original contributions to both basic and applied research in nondestructive testing (NDT) and structural health monitoring (SHM) by ultrasonic and electromagnetic techniques. His fundamental research interests are in the analysis of elastic and electromagnetic wave propagation in multilayered solids, fracture mechanics, biomechanics, and computational mechanics. Dr. Kundu has published widely, including seven books, 15 book chapters, and 270 technical papers. He is a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), and a life member of the Alexander von Humboldt Association of America (AvHAA). He is also the chairman of the SPIE yearly conference on Health Monitoring of Structural and Biological Systems. He has been serving as the associate editor of the Journal of Pressure Vessel Technology since 2006 and of Structural Health Monitoring: An International Journal since 2008. Dr. Kundu has been the advisory editor of the Structural Longevity journal since its inauguration in 2009 and editor-in-chief of the Journal of Civil Engineering Science.
