9780470661604: Acoustical Imaging: Techniques and Applications for Engineers

The technology of acoustical imaging has advanced rapidly over the last sixty years, and now represents a sophisticated technique applied to a wide range of fields including non-destructive testing, medical imaging, underwater imaging and SONAR, and geophysical exploration. Acoustical Imaging: Techniques and Applications for Engineers introduces the basic physics of acoustics and acoustical imaging, before progressing to more advanced topics such as 3D and 4D imaging, elasticity theory, gauge invariance property of acoustic equation of motion and acoustic metamaterials. The author draws together the different technologies in sonar, seismic and ultrasound imaging, highlighting the similarities between topic areas and their common underlying theory.

Key features:

  • Comprehensively covers all of the important applications of acoustical imaging.
  • Introduces the gauge invariance property of acoustic equation of motion, with applications in the elastic constants of isotropic solids, time reversal acoustics, negative refraction, double negative acoustical metamaterial and acoustical cloaking.
  • Contains up to date treatments on latest theories of sound propagation in random media, including statistical treatment and chaos theory.
  • Includes a chapter devoted to new acoustics based on metamaterials, a field founded by the author, including a new theory of elasticity and new theory of sound propagation in solids and fluids and tremendous potential in several novel applications.

Covers the hot topics on acoustical imaging including time reversal acoustics, negative refraction and acoustical cloaking.

Acoustical Imaging: Techniques and Applications for Engineers is a comprehensive reference on acoustical imaging and forms a valuable resource for engineers, researchers, senior undergraduate and graduate students.

About the Author:

Woon Siong Gan is the Director of Acoustical Technologies Singapore Pte Ltd. He obtained his PhD in acoustics from Imperial College, London in 1969, and since then has been conducting research into and published several papers on acoustical imaging. In 1989 he founded Acoustical Technologies Singapore Pte Ltd, an R&D company involved in the development of ultrasound technologies especially in high frequencies acoustical imaging, and has several patents granted in scanning acoustical microscope (SAM) and surface acoustic wave(SAW) devices.

Review:

“Woon Siong Gan's Acoustical Imaging is a comprehensive imaging.”  (Noise Control Engineering Journal, 1 July 2015)
