Description

One of the most important theoretical problems in ultrasonic NDE is the understanding and calculation of scattering of elastic waves from surface flaws, especially cracks, because cracks usually start on, and grow from, surfaces. Cracks can often lead to catastrophic failure, which may be avoided if they can be detected and characterized.
