Paper Title:
Acoustic Emission Monitoring during Solidification Processes
  Abstract

The paper summarizes the experiences acquired from on-line acoustic emission monitoring (herafter AE) of heavy castings during their manufacturing (solidification and following cooling in the mould). They are usually monitored elastic waves generated above all by stress changes in the solid state. In order to exactly determine plastic-elastic transition state the investigation was focused on raising the sensitivity of detection. The suitable experimental technique is discussed in the first part of this article. The main problem of the measurement by high temperatures was solved by using waveguides. It is very important in this case to select useful signal sources from mechanical and electromagnetical disturbances. Some laboratory experiments were done for studying the signal origin in the first state of solidification. The results from on-line monitoring of two types cast rolls during manufacturing were compared. Each type of casting has its typical AE histogram. For the quality evaluation ( in our case) is significant the time period of approximate 5 days after pouring . The time delayed stress induced cracking generates high level AE signal in this time period and the presence of such signal indicates defective product. The study of high temperature tensile tests, structural phase transformation and solidification processes using AE is very important for analysis of AE sources. The use of the laboratory results for the AE source analysis on real products will be subject to futher research.
