This paper will focus on fundamental principles associated with the imminent revolution in ultrasonic guided waves. This paper also outlined some selected major developments in guided waves during past decade. Only some applications in pipe, rail, butt joints, bonding and composites, imaging and tomography, material deterioration, ultrasonic vibration, de-icing, material integrity, structural health monitoring, and non-linear methods gave a birth to an idea of where we are heading.
