### Synopses & Reviews

Engineers, scientists, and technologists will find here, for the first time, a clear and comprehensive account of applications of ultrasonics in the field of process control. Using numerous examples of high-volume, low-cost applications, the author illustrates how the use of new transducer materials and designs, combined with microprocessor-based electronics, make technical and financial sense for concepts that only a few years ago might have been of interest only to academicians. Some of the important topics covered include coupling, acoustic isolation, transducer and sensor design, and signal detection in the presence of noise.

parameters this book would prove invaluable. It should be emphasized that the book does deal preferentially with industrial applications, and as such would also be a useful handbook to familiarise the academic community with some of the problems and state of the art solutions developed for process control thus far.

#### Review

ustrial processes but, in fact extends well into just about any endeavor or problem to which an ultrasonic approach may be the solution...It realizes its claim in the preface that it seeks to present an intuitive approach as far as possible rather than a mathematical one.

The book is well written and the author's style favours intuitive explanations over rigorous mathematical derivations while references to such material are generally included. For anyone working in a 'hands on' environment designing or selecting a system to ultrasonically measure one or more process control parameters this book would prove invaluable. It should be emphasized that the book does deal preferentially with industrial applications, and as such would also be a useful handbook to familiarise the academic community with some of the problems and state of the art solutions developed for process control thus far.
