Our Publications

our dedication to fundamental research

Editorships

Ultrasonics is the only internationally established journal which covers the entire field of ultrasound research and technology and all its many applications. Ultrasonics contains a variety of sections to keep readers fully informed and up-to-date on the whole spectrum of research and development throughout the world. Ultrasonics publishes papers of exceptional quality and of relevance to both academia and industry. Manuscripts in which ultrasonics is a central issue and not simply an incidental tool or minor issue, are welcomed. As well as top quality original research papers and review articles by world renowned experts, Ultrasonics also regularly features short communications, a calendar of forthcoming events and special issues dedicated to topical subjects. 

Editorial Role
Editor-in-Chief

Structural Health Monitoring: An International Journal is an international peer reviewed journal that publishes the highest quality original research that contain theoretical, analytical, and experimental investigations that advance the body of knowledge and its application in the discipline of structural health monitoring. The journal has a broad topical coverage and it serves as a primary reference for the structural health monitoring of aeronautical, mechanical, civil, electrical, and other systems. The multidisciplinary nature of the journal is intended to foster the intersection of different technologies to address the varied needs and applications for structural health monitoring. 

Editorial Role
Associate Editor

ASME Journal of Nondestructive Evaluation, Diagnostics and Prognostics of Engineering Systems 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 will address 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. The goal of the journal is to inform readers with state-of-the art developments in NDE, SHM and prognosis, disseminate new ideas on these subjects, and report related valuable applications. It is envisioned that the journal will bring under one umbrella engineering and science disciplines contributing to NDE, SHM and prognosis and feature practical applications of NDE and SHM in many technical fields. Contributions are welcomed in all areas of design, development, and applications of NDE and SHM in engineering systems
