Ultrasonic Instruments and Devices: Reference for Modern Instrumentation, Techniques, and Technology
Ultrasonic Instruments and Devices examines how years of ultrasound research has led to many practical inventions that are now products of use to ordinary people. Examples of personalized applications include the ultrasonograms of an unborn child, the testing of the parts of an automobile for durability, the electronics which make a cell phone work, and the meter in the gas line leading to a house. Larger concerns, such as safety of aircraft, are also discussed. A chapter is devoted to each major engineering area, and each chapter is written by one or more world-class experts in the particular area covered by the chapter. The characteristic uniting the products presented in this book is the extra effort that has been needed above and beyond research to transform the research results into practical items. One chapter of the book is devoted to essays bringing inventions out of the laboratory and onto the showroom floor. The book holds useful perspectives for entrepreneurs, researchers, managers, and consumers, and may turn out to be especially useful to professors and teachers trying to motivate students. There is some technical information in each chapter, varying from chapter to chapter, as well as a historical background.
