Dr. Aidy Ali is a professor of Mechanical Engineering at the National Defence University of Malaysia (NDUM) or known as the Universiti Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia (UPNM). He received his first degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Universiti Putra Malaysia in 1999. He pursued his PhD degree in the year 2003 with his research on 'Improving the Fatigue Life of Aircraft Components by Using Surface Engineering” at Sheffield University. He was then appointed as a lecturer at the Universiti Putra Malaysia in 2006, was rapidly promoted to senior lecturer in 2008 and to associate professor in 2010 and was rapidly appointed as a professor in 2012, all within a 6-year period of time. Professor Aidy has more than 17 years of experience in research and teaching in the field of mechanical engineering, especially in mechanical fatigue and fracture of materials. He has published more than 140 journals in Scopus and ISI and 19 books and secured more than 24 research grants. He supervised 16 PhD degree students, 36 master’s students and 30 bachelor’s degree students. His expertise is related to mechanical materials for defence applications, fatigue, fracture of materials, failure assessment, failure prevention analysis, reliability engineering prediction and crash analysis.

This book covers recent advances in the method used in testing, especially in the case of structural integrity that includes fatigue and fracture tests, vibrations test and surface engineering tests that are extremely crucial and widely used by engineers and industries. The book will provide you with information on how to apply the advanced formulation, advanced theory and advanced method of testing that are relevant to all engineering fields: mechanical, electrical, civil, materials and surface engineering. The topics are explained comprehensively, including the reliable test that one should perform in order to effectively investigate the strength and validation of the developed theory or model. I hope that the material is not too theoretical and that the reader finds the case study, formulation, testing method and the analysis helpful for tackling their own engineering and science based studies.
