Electromagnetic Nondestructive Evaluation (IX)
Electromagnetic Nondestructive Evaluation has grown considerably in recent years largely due to advances in sensor technology, computational modeling and data analysis techniques. This publication discusses developments in numerical simulation of physical phenomena associated with electromagnetic NDE methods, new electromagnetic sensors, signal and image processing techniques and inverse solutions to NDE problems. Electromagnetic Nondestructive Evaluation (IX) emphasizes basic science and early engineering developments in the field, as well as practical application of emerging technologies to problems of direct relevance to industry. The book contains thirty-six technical papers, covering topics on modeling, (forward and inverse problems), new inspection methods, materials characterization, signal processing and applications.
About the editors:
Lalita Udpa is a professor at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI, USA. At the university, she conducts research across a broad spectrum of electromagnetic and ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation techniques ranging from magnetostatic through quasistatic and microwave frequencies.
Nicola Bowler obtained her PhD from the University of Surrey, UK in 1994, with a thesis entitled 'Analytical Methods in Eddy-Current Non-Destructive Evaluation' (NDE). In this thesis, she solved canonical problems of eddy-current NDE analytically using perturbation theory, the Wiener-Hopf method and an adapted form of the geometrical theory of diffraction. Nicola Bowler is a professor at Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa, USA.
