Detecting and Identifying Artificial Acoustic Emission Signals in an Industrial Fatigue Environment
This paper details progress towards the application of a methodology for Acoustic Emission (AE) detection and interpretation for the monitoring of fatigue fractures in large-scale industrial environments. An artificial acoustic emission source, representative of a fatigue fracture was injected into a test of a substantial landing gear component. An AE monitoring system was then used to successfully locate and identify the source using the new signal processing methodology.
