Ostoja-Starzewski on editorial board of Applied Sciences
MechSE Professor Martin Ostoja-Starzewski has joined the editorial board of Applied Sciences, an open-access journal that provides an advanced forum on all aspects of applied natural sciences. It publishes reviews, research papers, and communications.
The journal covers all aspects of applied biology, applied chemistry, applied physics, and applied engineering. It has eight sections: “Nanotechnology and Applied Nanoscience,” “Optics and Lasers,” “Acoustics,” “Chemistry,” “Materials,” “Energy,” “Mechanical Engineering,” and “Computer Science and Electrical Engineering.”
Ostoja-Starzewski helps oversee the “Acoustics” section, which covers all aspects and applications of acoustic and elastic waves, as well as vibrations both in their active and passive form. This includes cases where waves are deliberately excited for monitoring purposes (such as ultrasound applied on a human patient, or structure), as well as the study of seismic waves or acoustic emissions originating from crack propagation within a material, or acoustic conditions in a concert hall. The focus is on the development of innovative techniques and material properties or processes monitored. The innovation can be the technique itself or the material being inspected.
