Modeling Ultrasonic Waves Using Finite Difference Methods
Is Version Of
Begun in 1973, the Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation (QNDE) is the premier international NDE meeting designed to provide an interface between research and early engineering through the presentation of current ideas and results focused on facilitating a rapid transfer to engineering development.
This site provides free, public access to papers presented at the annual QNDE conference between 1983 and 1999, and abstracts for papers presented at the conference since 2001.
Models based on explicit finite difference methods are used to study pulsed elastic wave propagation and scattering. These models were first developed in seismology and have now been developed and applied to SAW electronics and ultrasonic NDT.
