The present Special Issue aims to explore new trends in the field of condition monitoring of materials through Acoustic Emission (AE) and other Nondestructive Testing (NDT) techniques. The need for better control of material’s performance and processes is continuously pushing the limits of AE, with significant developments being achieved in terms of sensors, software, interpretation of signals, and characterization of materials’ condition. The focus is on all material systems, including metals, composites, rock, biological materials, and concrete. A certain number of contributions for this Special Issue will come from selected papers of IIIAE 2016 Kyoto, the first conference of International Institute of Innovative Acoustic Emission, composed of three major AE societies worldwide, namely the AE scientific committee in Japanese Society for Non-Destructive Inspection, the Acoustic Emission Working Group, USA, and the European Working Group of Acoustic Emission. IIIAE 2016 is also known by two other names, the 8th International Conference on Acoustic Emission, AEWG, and the 23rd International Acoustic Emission Symposium, JSNDI, http://iiiae.org/iiiae2016/index.html.
Topics of interest (among others) include:
- Signal- and parameter-based approaches for fracture monitoring
- Identification of fracture modes
- Innovative methodologies in AE (tomography, etc.)
- Monitoring of innovative materials
- AE for quality control of processes
- Combination of AE with other monitoring techniques
- Sensor technology and wireless systems
- AE for structural health monitoring
- Improvement in localization of sources
- Wave dispersion and waveguides
- Numerical simulations of acoustic wave propagation

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
