Ultrasound Modeling Techniques
de Cara A.C. Leckey e Sourav Banerjee
Introducing computational wave propagation methods developed over 40 years of research, this comprehensive book offers a computational approach to NDE of isotropic, anisotropic, and functionally graded materials. It discusses recent methods to enable enhanced computational efficiency for anisotropic materials. It offers an overview of the need for and uses of NDE simulation. The content provides a basic understanding of ultrasonic wave propagation through continuum mechanics and detailed discussions on the mathematical techniques of six computational methods to simulate NDE experiments. In this book, the pros and cons of each individual method are discussed and guidelines for selecting specific simulation methods for specific NDE scenarios are offered.Covers ultrasonic CNDE fundamentals to provide understanding of NDE simulation methodsOffers a catalog of effective CNDE methods to evaluate and compareProvides exercises on real-life NDE problems with mathematical stepsDiscusses CNDE for common material types, including isotropic, anisotropic, and functionally graded materialsPresents readers with practical knowledge on ultrasonic CNDE methodsThis work is an invaluable resource for researchers, advanced students, and industry professionals across materials, mechanical, civil, and aerospace engineering, and anyone seeking to enhance their understanding of computational approaches for advanced material evaluation methods.
