ME Staff Appointed to Associate Editor of ASME Journal

Prof. Zhongqing Su, Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, is appointed the Associate Editor of ASME Journal of Nondestructive Evaluation, Diagnostics and Prognostics of Engineering Systems (ASME JNDE) – the only journal specialized in nondestructive evaluation (NDE) and structural health monitoring (SHM) published by ASME.

ASME JNDE provides a venue for communication, discussion, and dissemination of advanced research related to ideas, opinions and solutions on a variety of subjects related to NDE, SHM and prognosis. This journal addresses the need for an archival international journal that will cover many aspects of interdisciplinary work in the field of NDE and SHM and report use of NDE and SHM in a wide range of applications in industry, government sector, and academia.

With Prof. Tribikram Kundu (University of Arizona, the USA) as the Editor-in-Chief, the editorial board of this journal includes 14 associate editors from the USA, the UK, Poland, Italy, Japan, South Korea and Hong Kong SAR.

The research group led by Prof. Su in ME PolyU has long been dedicated to both fundamental and applied research on ultrasonic-wave-based SHM and NDE. It enjoys burgeoning growth since its establishment, consistently outputting high-quality publications in top-tier journals and securing research grants from various sources. In the pursuit for excellence in research, the group is proactively applying research achievements to real-world engineering applications. With recognition in the field, the group is going to host the 7th Asia-Pacific Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring, to be held 13-16 November 2018 in Hong Kong.

On top of this editorship, Prof. Su is also the Associate Editor for Ultrasonics (Elsevier), Journal of Sound and Vibration (Elsevier), and Structural Health Monitoring: An International Journal (SAGE) – three top-tier journals in this field. His appointment as the Associate Editor to ASME Journal has demonstrated the recognition from peers on the team in PolyU working on fundamental research and engineering applications pertinent to NDE and SHM.
