J.A. Gallego-Juárez1; K.F. Graff2    1 Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), Madrid, Spain2 EWI, Columbus, OH, USA

Abstract

Ultrasonics is the branch of acoustics that deals with the generation and applications of inaudible acoustic waves. This chapter is concerned with high-intensity ultrasound and its capacity to change the physical, chemical, or biological properties of materials or systems to which it is applied. It provides an overview of the generation, transmission, and process/material interaction that is the framework for an understanding of power ultrasonics.
