Acoustic Emission Parameters Dependence on the Destruction Process Characteristics into Concrete
Acoustic emission (AE) techniques are extensively applied to a variety of fields including civil engineering. Now a new generation of AE techniques, which are able to register and process AE data in real-time, has appeared. Still, there exist some problems to correctly interpreting these data and to completely understand the meaning of AE parameters. In order to solve this, several AE waveform and spectral parameters are investigated, based on an experimental study of concrete and reinforced concrete structures.
