Acoustical Imaging: Techniques and Applications for by Woon Siong Gan

By Woon Siong Gan

The know-how of acoustical imaging has complex quickly during the last sixty years, and now represents a cosmopolitan strategy utilized to quite a lot of fields together with non-destructive trying out, scientific imaging, underwater imaging and SONAR, and geophysical exploration. Acoustical Imaging: suggestions and functions for Engineers introduces the fundamental physics of acoustics and acoustical imaging, sooner than progressing to extra complex subject matters resembling 3D and 4D imaging, elasticity concept, gauge invariance estate of acoustic equation of movement and acoustic metamaterials. the writer attracts jointly different applied sciences in sonar, seismic and ultrasound imaging, highlighting the similarities among subject parts and their universal underlying theory.

Key features:

  • Comprehensively covers the entire vital purposes of acoustical imaging.
  • Introduces the gauge invariance estate of acoustic equation of movement, with purposes within the elastic constants of isotropic solids, time reversal acoustics, damaging refraction, double adverse acoustical metamaterial and acoustical cloaking.
  • Contains brand new remedies on most recent theories of sound propagation in random media, together with statistical remedy and chaos theory.
  • Includes a bankruptcy dedicated to new acoustics according to metamaterials, a box based by way of the writer, together with a brand new idea of elasticity and new thought of sound propagation in solids and fluids and super capability in different novel applications.

Covers the new themes on acoustical imaging together with time reversal acoustics, adverse refraction and acoustical cloaking.

Acoustical Imaging: innovations and functions for Engineers is a complete reference on acoustical imaging and types a precious source for engineers, researchers, senior undergraduate and graduate students.
