The Use Of Acoustic Emission Testing On Long Term Monitoring Of Damaged Components

Allevato, C.


ABSTRACT:
Conventional acoustic emission (AE) commercial applications in the USA focus on assessing the structural integrity of pressure vessels and tanks. Even though there is a wide variety of newly developed advanced non-destructive techniques supporting these
assessments as an alternative to AE, the variety of situations under which AE can be helpful continue to expand. This presentation aims at illustrating some new applications of AE on our historically pressure vessel oriented focus.
