Identification of acoustic emission wave modes for accurate source location in plate-like structures
Kaphle, Manindra R., Tan, Andy C. C., Thambiratnam, David, & Chan, Tommy H.T. (2010) Identification of acoustic emission wave modes for accurate source location in plate-like structures. Structural Control and Health Monitoring, 19(2), pp. 187-198.
Acoustic emission (AE) technique is a popular tool used for structural health monitoring of civil, mechanical and aerospace structures. It is a non-destructive method based on rapid release of energy within a material by crack initiation or growth in the form of stress waves. Recording of these waves by means of sensors and subsequent analysis of the recorded signals convey information about the nature of the source. Ability to locate the source of stress waves is an important advantage of AE technique; but as AE waves travel in various modes and may undergo mode conversions, understanding of the modes (‘modal analysis’) is often necessary in order to determine source location accurately. This paper presents results of experiments aimed at finding locations of artificial AE sources on a thin plate and identifying wave modes in the recorded signal waveforms. Different source locating techniques will be investigated and importance of wave mode identification will be explored.
