Special Issue "Advanced Nondestructive Evaluation and Characterization of Surface"
A special issue of Coatings (ISSN 2079-6412).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 April 2019
Nondestructive evaluation (NDE) is an interdisciplinary field, which has been developed rapidly over recent decades as an important tool for damage detection, quality assessement and material characterization. Initiation and progression of degradation or cracks generally occurs on the surface of industrial components. This Special issue of Coatings is poised to collect original scientific or technical research articles and review papers relaed to advanced nondestructive evaluation and characterization of surfaces in solid structures. Especially, novel theoretical and experimental appraochs, with improved sensitivity, characterization capability, and efficiency of measurement, are of interest.
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Surface waves based nondestructive evaluation
Surface cracks detection
Characterization of surface properties
Online monitoring of structural surface
