Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ultrasonic testing can be used to interrogate targets nondestructively for the purpose of object characterization, defect detection, structural health monitoring, process monitoring, remote sensing, and imaging. In recent years, there have been new developments in this field in various aspects such as sensor design, instrument development, new algorithms, and applications. This Special Issue of NDT on “Recent Advances in Ultrasonic Nondestructive Evaluation” welcomes contributions from the following topics:

  • Phased array ultrasonic testing;
  • Long range ultrasonic testing;
  • Defect detection and reliability of advanced ultrasonic NDT;
  • Ultrasonic sensor design and optimisation;
  • Novel ultrasonic NDT;
  • Advanced signal and image processing;
  • Material characterisation.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. NDT is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
