Topic：My International Research Collaborations on Non-destructive Evaluation and Structural Health Monitoring

In this presentation my various research collaborations with international and domestic scientists will be highlighted. It will include my collaborations with Japanese, Chinese and Polish scientists on acoustic source localization, with Spanish, Korean, Chinese, Indian and Italian scientists on nonlinear ultrasonic techniques, with German scientists on biological material characterization using acoustic microscopes, with French scientists on wave propagation modelling by a newly developed mesh-free semi-analytical modelling technique called distributed point source method (DPSM) and with Russian and American scientists for developing various guided wave based NDE techniques. Between bulk waves and guided waves, the latter is gaining more popularity for NDE/SHM applications because the guided waves can propagate long distances and reach regions that are difficult to access otherwise.
Biography of the Speaker:
Prof. Tribikram Kundu is an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow. He received his bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, and his master's and doctoral degrees from the University of California, Los Angeles, USA. His research interests include non-destructive evaluation and structural health monitoring. He has won multiple awards in the field of non-destructive evaluation, including the NDE Lifetime Achievement Award from SPIE in 2012, the NDE Excellence Award from ASNT in 2015, the NDE Award from ASME, etc.
