  • Acoustic Emission: Standards and Technology Update

    This comprehensive volume presents 16 peer-reviewed papers that explore the evolution of AE technology worldwide and provide you with the latest information on AE instrumentation, applications, standards and codes. STP 1353 also draws comparisons between AE and other Nondestructive Testing (NDT) technologies are examined as to their suitability ...

  • Underwater Acoustics

    Sound waves are the only practical means of remote investigation of the sea and its bottom and transmission in seawater. Underwater acoustics has become one of the major technologies used in the exploration and exploitation of the oceans for scientific, industrial, or military/naval purposes. It is widely employed in the fields of ocean ...

  • Atmospheric Acoustic Remote Sensing

    Sonic Detection and Ranging (SODAR) systems and Radio Acoustic Sounding Systems (RASS) use sound waves to determine wind speed, wind direction, and turbulent character of the atmosphere. They are increasingly used for environmental and scientific applications such as analyzing ground-level pollution dispersion and monitoring conditions affecting ...

  • Leak Detection

    Ageing infrastructure and declining water resources are major concerns with a growing global population.  Controlling water loss has therefore become a priority for water utilities around the world.  In order to improve efficiencies, water utilities need to apply good practices in leak detection. Leak Detection: Technology and Implementation ...

  • The Handbook of Sidescan Sonar

    Seafloor surveying with acoustic remote sensing has become a powerful tool for researchers and professionals seeking knowledge about the structure and behavior of the seafloor. In particular, sidescan sonar is proving to be the preeminent technique, but its data is often difficult to interpret due to the physics of acoustic remote sensing, and to ...

  • Novel Approaches in Biosensors and Rapid Diagnostic Assays

    In the medical, food, and environmental fields there is a continuous demand for inexpensive and sensitive analytical devices that are reliable, rapid, capable of high-throughput screening, and have low cost per test unit. Small and portable biosensor devices are designed to fulfill most of these requirements, and can be used in laboratory and ...

  • Geometrical Geodesy

    The book has evolved through the author's 25 years of advising and writing on geodetic methods in which the aspect of learning by doing is stressed, including analyses of quality. Consequently, it covers practical aspects of geometrical geodesy and particulars of fundamental constants, horizontal and vertical datums, geoids, bi-axial ellipsoids ...

  • ASTM International Standards on Color and Appearance Measurement: 8th Edition (Print)

    This new edition, available in print or CD-ROM, provides 126 ASTM standards used in appearance analysis for a variety of materials and products, such as acoustical tile, petroleum products, paints and coatings, paper, plastics, textiles, traffic marking materials, and pavement surfaces. These materials include those that reflect and transmit ...

  • Tagging and Tracking of Marine Animals with Electronic Devices

    The 2nd international tagging and tracking symposium was held in San Sebastian, Spain, in October 2007, seven years after the first symposium was held in Hawaii in 2000 (Sibert and Nielsen 2001). In the intervening seven years, there have been major advances in both the capability and reliability of electronic tags and analytical approaches for ...
