Computational Nondestructive Evaluation Handbook
Introducing computational wave propagation methods developed over 40 years of research, this comprehensive book offers a computational approach to NDE of isotropic, anisotropic, and functionally graded materials. It discusses recent methods to enable enhanced computational efficiency for anisotropic materials. It offers an overview of the need for and uses of NDE simulation. The content provides a basic understanding of ultrasonic wave propagation through continuum mechanics and detailed discussions on the mathematical techniques of six computational methods to simulate NDE experiments. In this book, the pros and cons of each individual method are discussed and guidelines for selecting specific simulation methods for specific NDE scenarios are offered.
