Assistant professorTechnical University of PoznanPoland

Wojciech Sikorski was born in Poland in 1977. In 2001 he graduated from the Electrical Faculty in the Poznan University of Technology with the M.Sc. degree in high voltage engineering and in 2005 with the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering. He worked as a visiting researcher at the University of Stuttgart, Germany (2003), University of Manitoba (postdoctoral fellowship), Winnipeg, Canada (2007) and CG Power Systems Canada Inc. (2007). He participated in a few international and national research projects supported by the European Union and Polish Government. He published over 50 papers in journals and international conferences, mainly on measurement, diagnostics and on-line monitoring of power transformers with the use of acoustic emission (AE) method. He also carried out a number of technical expertise for electric power industry in the field of AE. Currently he specializes in development of AE signal source localization techniques. He is an active member of the Association of Polish Electrical Engineers and Polish Society for Theoretical and Applied Electrical Engineering.

Acoustic emission (AE) is one of the most important non-destructive testing (NDT) methods for materials, constructions and machines. Acoustic emission is defined as the transient elastic energy that is spontaneously released when materials undergo deformation, fracture, or both. This interdisciplinary book consists of 17 chapters, which widely discuss the most important applications of AE method as machinery and civil structures condition assessment, fatigue and fracture materials research, detection of material defects and deformations, diagnostics of cutting tools and machine cutting process, monitoring of stress and ageing in materials, research, chemical reactions and phase transitions research, and earthquake prediction.
