Advanced Nondestructive Evaluation I
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The papers which make up this volume reflect the very diverse nature of nondestructive evaluation; covering as they do topics ranging from traditional NDE to newly developing NDE methods such as structural health monitoring; where nondestructive technologies are rapidly progressing by integrating emerging technologies from various fields.
The collection is divided into twenty-seven chapters: Modeling and Simulation, New Methods and Devices, Optical Methods, Micro-Sensors and MEMS, Smart Structures & Systems, Health Monitoring of Structures, NDT for Infrastructures, NDT in the Nuclear Industry, NDT in Power Plant, Aging & Degradation, Fatigue & Fracture, Guided Wave, IR Thermography, Composite Materials & Structures, Bio & Medical NDE, NDE for Biosystems and Agriculture, Signal Processing, Image Processing, Materials Properties, NDE in Materials Processing, Railways, Reliability, Vibration, Neutron Radiography, NDE in the Electronic Industry, Welding and Personnel Qualification.
This thorough coverage will make it a quite indispensible reference work.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Representing the proceedings of the first international conference on the topic (November 2005) held in Korea, two volumes contain several hundred papers ranging from traditional to newly developing NDE methods. Arrangement is in 27 chapters on NDT topics related to modeling and simulation, new methods & devices, optical methods, micro-sensors and MEMS, smart structures & systems, health monitoring of structures, the nuclear industry, aging and degradation, biosystems and agriculture, railways, the electronic industry, power plants, image processing, reliability, vibration, neutron radiography, welding, and personnel qualification. A sampling of papers: optically encoded smart dust from DBR porous silicon, biologically inspired smart sensor for acoustic emission detection, crack detection by static measurement in steel beam, drill pipe thread inspection, and design of femoral IM nail by analysis of lateral curve angle.
