Inspec adds 14 millionth record

Inspec, the Institution of Engineering and Technology’s (IET) database of science and engineering research, has indexed its 14 millionth record, highlighting the IET’s commitment to making high-quality scientific and technological intelligence easily available to an international audience. 

Inspec’s landmark 14 millionth record is an important piece of medical technology research. The paper, 'Transmission of acoustic emission in bones, implants and dental materials', examines the potential for using acoustic emission (AE) and ultrasound to inspect implant interface and fixity, and to passively monitor implants. The author’s findings shed new light on the transmission of AE energy through bone and dental materials, which they found was dependent on the level of hydration.

The article, by a team of researchers from Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh, UK, is published in the Journal of Engineering in Medicine, published by SAGE on behalf of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

‘Our relationship with Inspec is extremely valuable,’ said Professor Anthony Unsworth, Editor of the Journal of Engineering in Medicine at SAGE.
