In our earlier publication , a comparatively simple but efficient novel approach is proposed to quantify the incubation of damage state using a scanning acoustic microscope (SAM). The proposed approach exploits the hybrid microcontinuum field theory to quantify intrinsic (multiscale) damage states. Defying the conventional route of bottom-up multi-scale modeling methods, a hybrid topdown approach is presented, which is then correlated to the ultrasonic signature obtained from the materials. In , Table I reported the wave travel distances rather than the thickness of the specimens, as indicated by the column head. The specimen thicknesses were close to 0.512 mm and the wave travel distances were twice the thickness of the specimens along the thickness direction. The errors were detected and corrected herein.
