Acoustical Imaging: Techniques and Applications for by Woon Siong Gan

By Woon Siong Gan

The expertise of acoustical imaging has complicated swiftly during the last sixty years, and now represents a cosmopolitan procedure utilized to a variety of fields together with non-destructive checking out, scientific imaging, underwater imaging and SONAR, and geophysical exploration. Acoustical Imaging: innovations and functions for Engineers introduces the elemental physics of acoustics and acoustical imaging, earlier than progressing to extra complicated themes resembling 3D and 4D imaging, elasticity conception, gauge invariance estate of acoustic equation of movement and acoustic metamaterials. the writer attracts jointly the several 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 functions of acoustical imaging.
  • Introduces the gauge invariance estate of acoustic equation of movement, with functions within the elastic constants of isotropic solids, time reversal acoustics, unfavourable refraction, double unfavorable acoustical metamaterial and acoustical cloaking.
  • Contains brand new remedies on most recent theories of sound propagation in random media, together with statistical therapy and chaos theory.
  • Includes a bankruptcy dedicated to new acoustics in response to metamaterials, a box based via the writer, together with a brand new thought of elasticity and new idea of sound propagation in solids and fluids and super strength in different novel applications.

Covers the recent issues on acoustical imaging together with time reversal acoustics, unfavorable refraction and acoustical cloaking.

Acoustical Imaging: ideas and purposes for Engineers is a accomplished reference on acoustical imaging and types a worthy source for engineers, researchers, senior undergraduate and graduate students.
