Special Issue "Sensors Based NDE and NDT"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2020).
Interests: shock wave lithotripsy (SWL); high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU); ultrasound-enhanced drug delivery; nondestructive evaluation (NDE); surface acoustic wave (SAW)
Interests: structural health monitoring; non-destructive testing/evaluation (NDT/E); surface wave; guided wave (GW); wireless sensor networks (WSNs); compressive sensing (CS); osseointegrated prosthesis monitoring
Non-destructive testing/evaluation (NDT/NDE) methods clearly have a significant role in both science and technology for the evaluation of the properties of materials, components, and systems in civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, aeronautical engineering, and medical applications. It has gained increasing attention in recent years, mainly because of its high precision and sensitivity without any damage to samples. There are growing needs to monitor samples of materials, components, and systems to more accurately identify whether there is damage, where the damage is, what type it is, and how big the damage is with quantitative data acquired by sensors and 2D/3D images visualized by reconstructed algorithms.
This Special Issue aims to publish highly rated manuscripts presenting the recent developments and applications of original sensor-based NDE and NDT approaches addressed to the study of science and engineering assessment, including sensor design and fabrication, system construction, theoretical simulation, data analysis, reconstruction algorithms, experimental results, and applications. Topics include but are not limited to the keywords listed as follows:
- surface acoustic wave and guided wave
- new developments in smart sensors
- novel intelligent sensing-based NDT/E approaches
- distributed wireless sensor networks
- reconstruction algorithm of NDT/E
- damage detection and visualization
- theoretical simulation of wave propagation and interaction
- artificial intelligence in the data analysis and damage prediction
- industrial applications and evaluation
- clinical non-destructive evaluations

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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
