Acoustic emission

Only on StudentShare
...Acoustic emission (often abbreviated as AE) refers to the waves of the ultrasound and sound that are normally yielded following internal changes/ deformations in a substance due to forces that are external. It is basically those waves of sound that a substance emits after fracture or deformation that in turn yield energy of stress. These produced waves of stress result to small motions on the molecules on the surface as they move to the substance surface from the location of the crack/ event/ deformation. The stress waves can be detected by instruments known as AE sensors and the substance is normally left un-impacted since the energy emanates from the location... Insert Introduction and Definition...

The process of early detection has proved to be a very crucial factor in condition monitoring as well as serving as a basic extended CBM component (Zamada and Masuda, 1999, p. 160). Though the two sensors are effectively applied in this process, there exist several differences in their applications as...
