Fundamentals and Applications of Ultrasonic Waves, Second Edition

Written at an intermediate level in a way that is easy to understand, Fundamentals and Applications of Ultrasonic Waves, Second Edition provides an up-to-date exposition of ultrasonics and some of its main applications Designed specifically for newcomers to the field, this fully updated second edition emphasizes underlying physical concepts over mathematics

The first half covers the fundamentals of ultrasonic waves for isotropic media Starting with bulk liquid and solid media, discussion extends to surface and plate effects, at which point the author introduces new modes such as Rayleigh and Lamb waves This focus on only isotropic media simplifies the usually complex mathematics involved, enabling a clearer understanding of the underlying physics to avoid the complicated tensorial description characteristic of crystalline media

The second part of the book addresses a broad spectrum of industrial and research applications, including quartz crystal resonators, surface acoustic wave devices, MEMS and microacoustics, and acoustic sensors It also provides a broad discussion on the use of ultrasonics for non-destructive evaluation The author concentrates on the developing area of microacoustics, including exciting new work on the use of probe microscopy techniques in nanotechnology

Focusing on the physics of acoustic waves, as well as their propagation, technology, and applications, this book addresses viscoelasticity, as well as new concepts in acoustic microscopy It updates coverage of ultrasonics in nature and developments in sonoluminescence, and it also compares new technologies, including use of atomic force acoustic microscopy and lasers Highlighting both direct and indirect applications for readers working in neighboring disciplines, the author presents particularly important sections on the use of microacoustics and acoustic nanoprobes in next-generation devices and instruments

Introduction to Random Signal Analysis and Kalman Filtering

Focuses on applied Kalman filtering and its random signal analysis Important to all control system and communication engineers, it emphasizes applications, computer software and associated sets of special computer problems to aid in tying together both theory and practice Along with actual case studies, a diskette is included to enable readers to actually see how Kalman filtering works

Computer Aided Structural Design: Guidelines in the automatic calculation of structures

The presence on the market of more and more user friendly structural analysis software takes to the fact that a Finite Element code user is not always prepared to dress the stress engineer clothes Facing this situation from a cultural point of view is not certainly easy, above all when economic interests are present and therefore the vendors tend to highlight the simplicity of using a modern program and to hide the possible dangers and the sources of possible errors

About the Author:
After his Master Degree in 1992 in Mechanical Engineering at Politecnico of Milan, Claudio Gianini starts working as a structural engineer in Firema Trasporti, before moving in 1998 in Alenia Space and in 1999 in Aermacchi In 2000 he joins Scuderia Ferrari, where he deals with the structural design of suspension components for the Formula One cars, and then he moves first in Dallara and later in Toyota F1 Team, where he stays with the role of leader of the chassis structural design Group until the end of the F1 project in 2009

From 2010 he works as a consultant for structural design, mainly for the ITER project (www iter org), until middle of 2012, when he returns to Formula One with Sauber In 2015 he leaves Sauber and founds CG CAE Sagl, a consulting company for structural design Very active in engineering disclosure, between 1995 and 2004 he publishes 26 articles on the usage of the Finite Element Method 2003 is the year of the publication of the book Computer Aided Structural Design – Guidelines in the automatic calculation of structures, a handbook whose purpose is to provide the necessary information for the correct usage of the Finite Element Method This text appears in the list of recommended books in some Italian universities for computer aided design courses, and the introduction to it is signed by Rory Byrne In 2006 the publication of a second manual, Structural Design Advanced Techniques completes the process that began three years before and provides additional tools for the usage of methods for the solution of more complex structural problems The introduction to this text is signed by Luca Marmorini The two texts are used in some degree courses at Politecnico of Torino, at the University of Florence, at the University of Salento and at the University Federico II of Naples, as well as in several Schools
