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 electromagnetic NDE in a single, authoritative resource. This is also one of the first books to incorporate a number of popular NDE methods based on electromagnetic techniques.
Combines Engineering and Biological Material Characterization Techniques in One Book
The book begins with the relevant fundamentals of mechanics and electromagnetic theory, derives the basic equations, and then, step by step, covers state-of-the-art topics and applications of ultrasonic and electromagnetic NDE that are at the forefront of research. These include engineering, biological, and clinical applications such as structural health monitoring, acoustic microscopy, the characterization of biological cells, and terahertz imaging.
Covers Numerous Applications of Ultrasonic and Electromagnetic Techniques—from the Traditional to the Advanced
Written in plain language by some of the world’s leading experts, the book includes worked-out examples and exercises that make this an outstanding resource for coursework. The coverage of traditional and advanced NDE applications also appeals to practicing engineers and researchers.
"The book comprises an essential reference for researchers and graduate students working in ultrasonic or electromagnetic NDE. The different chapters contributed by recognized experts in the field cover both fundamental theory as well as current research areas."
—Dr. Paul Fromme, University College London, UK
"Professor Kundu is to be congratulated for bringing together this list of experts, each with many years of experience, as contributors to this much needed book. The book provides a comprehensive and rigorous approach of the fundamentals of linear and nonlinear ultrasonics and electromagnetic methods, including a chapter on the newly emerging THz technique. The book also provides enough advanced engineering and biological applications to make the reader familiar with these technologies, including applications of guided waves, nonlinear ultrasonics, laser-ultrasonics, acoustic microscopy, and fiber optics. This makes this book an excellent text for a senior/first-year graduate course in nondestructive testing and evaluation, or as a text in a course in engineering and biological materials characterization. It is also an excellent reference book for practicing engineers and scientists, and I highly recommend it."
—Henrique Reis, Department of Industrial and Enterprise Systems Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA
"The authors present theory and applications in details for the readers to appreciate the challenges involved and opportunities for significant advancement. Adequate references are included for further exploration. Overall, some of the chapters in this book are a good reference source of information on the state-of-the-art of current researches. They will be very useful to graduate students and researchers."
