Among the topics are the numerical simulation of multiple scattering by hidden cracks under the incidence of elastic waves, the mechanics of randomly folded thin materials, the effect of mixed mode loading induced by asymmetric stress on crack initiation from corrosion pits, the short-crack propagation model applied to shot peened aluminum alloys, verifying the ultrasonic qualification for structural integrity of partially concrete embedded steel elements, and residual strength and fracture path for drilled epoxy-glass composites.
One limitation of using this technique is known as multiple scattering. Multiple scattering occurs when the light is scattered by multiple drops before reaching the detector, and therefore, introduces errors in computing the droplet size distribution.
