Ultrasonics is a multidisciplinary subject with applications in many of the basic sciences. Most of the existing texts on this subject are very specialized and often too advanced to be of use to those not in that exact specialty. Accessible to a wide readership, Fundamentals and Applications of Ultrasonic Waves provides a treatment that is rigorous yet not overly specialized. It presents clear exposition on the physics of acoustic waves, their propagation, transmission and reflection, and the different modes that can be excited in various geometries. The author examines the engineering aspects of those geometries and explores the sundry methods of generation and detection.
