Ultrasonics International 87 contains the Proceedings of the Ultrasonics International Conference and Exhibition held at London, United Kingdom on July 1987. The conference discussed and reviewed some of the developments in the field of ultrasonics.

The compendium consists of over 150 contributed papers, four invited papers and three plenary papers. Topics discussed include generation of unipolar ultrasonic pulses by signal processing; scattering of longitudinal waves by partially closed slots; piezoelectric materials for ultrasonic transducers; and measuring turbulent flow characteristics using a multi- dimensional ultrasonic probe. Fiber optic sensors, medical imaging and inverse methods, and laser generation of ultrasound are covered as well.

Physicians, technicians, researchers, and physical scientists will find the book insightful.
