About the book

Acoustic emission is defined as a phenomenon involving sound wave generation by materials subject to deformation, fracture and chemical reactions. The use of acoustic emission has been growing tremendously in process monitoring and quality control in manufacturing processes since its discovery in the early 1950s in Germany. Structural testing and assessment, process monitoring, and material characterization constitute three broad application areas of the acoustic emission techniques. Quantitative and qualitative characteristics of acoustic emission waves have been studied widely in the literature.

This book reviews major research developments over the past few years in application of acoustic emission in numerous fields, including biomedical field as well as automotive, aerospace, civil, manufacturing, and material engineering fields. Acoustic emission techniques have recently been employed to study composite materials. This book is intended to bring together important contributions from renowned international researchers to provide an excellent survey of new perspectives and paradigms of acoustic emissions.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Romina Rovan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
