Ultrasonic Nondestructive Evaluation Systems: Models and Measurements provides the latest information and techniques available for ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation (NDE) inspections. Using a systems level approach, this book employs aspects of Fourier analysis, linear system theory, and wave propagation and scattering theory to develop a comprehensive model of an entire ultrasonic measurement system. The book also describes in detail the measurements needed to obtain all the system model parameters. This integrated approach leads to a new model-based engineering technology for designing, using and optimizing ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation inspections. Practicing engineers, teachers, and students alike will learn about the latest developments in NDE technology, including a recently developed pulse-echo method for measuring the sensitivity of an ultrasonic transducer, and the use of Gaussian beam theory in simulating the wave fields generated by ultrasonic transducers. In addition, this unique book incorporates MATLAB examples and exercises which allow readers to conduct simulated inspections and implement the latest modeling technology. Written by recognized experts in NDE research, Ultrasonic Nondestructive Evaluation Systems: Models and Measurements is designed to combine well-developed techniques with the latest advances in technology.
