Similarly, AE can be effective in detecting the so-called ‘kissing bond’ (a bond with no strength, or which has failed, but is perfectly closed) and weak bond conditions. These flaws or damage conditions are difficult to detect with other NDE methods. • AE sensing is more sensitive than other NDE methods such as ultrasonic and radio graphic testing,1 thus, the AE technique can be used to detect micro damage, crack initiation, and incipient failure. Like all NDE methods, the AE technique has certain limitations: • • • • • AE testing must be conducted under load (except for impact damage detection).

Rise time Decay time Amplitude Amplitude [mV] An acoustic emission is detected as a transient wave signal. Each of the detected AE signals can be recorded as two types of data; parameter data and waveform data. AE parameter data is obtained by measuring waveform features of an individual AE hit, or by measuring AE activity over a period of time. The measurable parameters from a waveform include amplitude, energy, count or ring-down count, rise time, and duration. As shown in Fig. 4 Illustration of an AE waveform and measureable parameters.

Thus it represents an attempt at deriving knowledge about the actual condition of a structure, or system, with the aim of not just knowing that its performance may have deteriorated, but rather to be able to assess remaining performance levels and life. 2 Concept of damage tolerance. © Woodhead Publishing Limited, 2013 Time period Introduction 7 at some point in the near future, enable those associated with the operation of civil infrastructure systems to handle both the growing inventory of deteriorating and deficient systems and the need for the development of design methods that inherently prescribe risk to a system based on usage and hence differentiate between systems based on frequency of use and type of operating environment.
