Special Issue "Advances in Ultrasonic Guided Wave Sensor Technologies for Structural Health Monitoring"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 December 2019.
Ultrasonic Guided Wave (UGW) testing has gained greater attention from the industry for its inherent capability of long-range inspection. This technology is widely used as a screening tool in many industries, e.g., oil and gas, renewable energy, naval, construction, and aerospace. Recent attempts have been made to improve the resolution and sensitivity of UGW sensors for quantitative measurements of structural health and also to inspect complex structures, e.g., glass laminate aluminium reinforced epoxy, and carbon fiber reinforced polymer.
This Special Issue is aimed to the submission of both review and original research articles related to the advancement of UGW sensor development, signal processing, and applications of UGW for structural assessment. Topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Non-destructive testing and material characterisation
- The inspection of complex material and structures using UGW
- Flexible sensor development
- UGW imaging and visualisation
- Industrial applications
- The remote monitoring of structural health

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 1800 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.
