This well written monograph serves to introduce the entire field of ultrasonics to the worker previously uninitiated.
To undertake coverage of ultrasound in one book precludes detailed discussion of any single topic. Nevertheless the author has succeeded admirably in covering the fundamentals in a style readily understood by the worker with only modest background (calculus and engineering physics). Higher mathematical and physical discussions, especially as related to transducer design, have been avoided but references are given.
The first three chapters on the basic principles of ultrasound can serve as an excellent introduction to the new worker in the field. In fact, chapter 2 is one of the clearest and most readily understood introductions currently available. The industrial application of ultrasound is stressed in subsequent chapters which are of less interest to the biological worker. These chapters on flaw detection, biological, and medical uses serve as an excellent introduction to these
