Auteliano Antunes dos Santos Junior is an Associate Professor and Head of the Mechanical Design Department at the University of Campinas – Unicamp. He obtained his bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of the State of São Paulo in 1987, his MS in Mechanical Design in 1992, and PhD in Mechanical Engineering in 1996, both from Unicamp. From 1998 to 1999, he worked as a Visiting Scholar at the Texas A&M University, USA researching acoustoelasticity. His main subjects of research are stress measurement using ultrasound (acoustoelasticity) and ESPI (electronic speckle pattern interferometry), tribology and brake design modeling of elasto-plastic contact between rolling bodies and multi-body dynamic analysis of railroad freight cars. He developed partnerships for research and service projects with companies like VALE, Petrobras, Faiveley Transport, Thyssenkrup Metalúrgica Campo Limpo, Fras-le and Union Park Limited, as well as with research foundations like São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) and Air Force Office for Scientific Research – USA (AFOSR).

Ultrasonic waves are well-known for their broad range of applications. They can be employed in various fields of knowledge such as medicine, engineering, physics, biology, materials etc. A characteristic presented in all applications is the simplicity of the instrumentation involved, even knowing that the methods are mostly very complex, sometimes requiring analytical and numerical developments. This book presents a number of state-of-the-art applications of ultrasonic waves, developed by the main researchers in their scientific fields from all around the world. Phased array modelling, ultrasonic thrusters, positioning systems, tomography, projection, gas hydrate bearing sediments and Doppler Velocimetry are some of the topics discussed, which, together with materials characterization, mining, corrosion, and gas removal by ultrasonic techniques, form an exciting set of updated knowledge. Theoretical advances on ultrasonic waves analysis are presented in every chapter, especially in those about modelling the generation and propagation of waves, and the influence of Goldberg's number on approximation for finite amplitude acoustic waves. Readers will find this book ta valuable source of information where authors describe their works in a clear way, basing them on relevant bibliographic references and actual challenges of their field of study.
