    Topics addressed include: sensors and AE systems; fundamental aspects of AE acousto-ultrasonics; new AE signal processing techniques; structural monitoring applications; material deformation studies; novel applications of AE measurement; geotechnical applications; and the use of AE to monitor failure processes in composite ...

  • Acoustic Emission Monitoring of Pressurized Systems

    A publication that addresses the acoustic emission technique as a viable complimentary nondestructive testing method. The papers presented draw a correlation between the generation of acoustic emission and defect growth; develop methods to evaluate and rank the severity of the flaw growth; and include the evaluation that acoustic emission method ...

  • Monitoring Structural Integrity by Acoustic Emission

    The symposium on Monitoring Structural Integrity by Acoustic Emission was presented in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., 17-18 Jan. 1974. The symposium was sponsored by Committee E07 on Nondestructuve Testing, American Society for Testing and Materials. J. C. Spanner, Westinghouse Hanford Co., presided as symposium chairman. J. W. McElroy, Philadelphia ...

  • Seismic Wave Propagation and Scattering in the Heterogenous Earth

    Seismic waves – generated both by natural earthquakes and by man-made sources – have produced an enormous amount of information about the Earth's interior. In classical seismology, the Earth is modeled as a sequence of uniform horizontal layers (or sperical shells) having different elastic properties and one determines these properties from travel ...

  • Acoustical Imaging

    Acoustical imaging has become an indispensable tool in a variety of fields. Since its introduction, the applications have grown and cover a variety of techniques, producing significant results in fields as disparate as medicine and seismology. Cutting-edge trends continue to be discussed worldwide.This book contains the proceedings of the 27th ...

  • Theory and Applications of Nonviscous Fluid Flows

    The purpose of this book is to present a broad panorama of model problems encountered in nonviscous Newtonian fluid flows. This is achieved by investigating the significant features of the solutions of the corresponding equations using the method of asymptotic analysis. The book thereby fills a long-standing gap in the literature by providing ...

  • Urban Forest Acoustics

    Trees can reduce noise by sound reflection and absorption. Investigating noise control in urban environments, Voichita Bucur's new book Urban Forest Acoustics covers the following topics:- dendrological characteristics of trees- factors affecting sound propagation in forest belts- equipment for in situ noise measurements- acoustical sensors for ...

  • 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 ...

  • Tagging and Tracking of Marine Animals with Electronic Devices
