Re: Good book to teach NDE/NDT with wave emphasis? Roelof:
You asked about books on EM and Acoustic waves applied
in tomographic & reflective modes.
My beginings were also in geophysics and I found the
cross-over to NDT relatively easy (in fact some of the
DSP used in geophysics 25 years ago only recently
found its way into NDT).
About the books: I assume you want application type (not just wave mechanics).
Medical books might be a good source too.
e.g. Handbook of Ultraonic B-scanning in Medicine, by R.M.LUNT, Cambridge Press
On microwaves try:
Microwave nondestructive testing methods / Alfred J. Bahr. -
Nondestructive testing monographs and tracts, v. 1
Bahr, Alfred J., 1935-
New York : Gordon and Breach Science Publishers, c1982.
In ultrasonics there are many. 2 include:
Ultrasonic Imaging: Seeing by sound:
London, Focal Press, 1980
Ultrasonics: Fundamentals, Technology, Applications
Marcel Dekker, 1988
Dr. Tony Sinclair at the U of Toronto might have suggestions:
: I am planning a new course which will mainly focus
: on using em & acoustic waves in tomographic
: and reflectivity mode. I am a geophysicist, so
: have that background, but am looking to give it
: a NDE/NDT flavor (so as to appeal to engineers as well)
: I've been looking around for some books (undergraduate
: junior/senior level) but haven't found anything.
: I'd appreciate any pointers.
