Acoustic Emission Monitoring of Al Corrosion in Cemented-Based Wasteforms
An acoustic emission (AE) technique has been employed for nondestructive monitoring of the performance of a laboratory scale cementitious wasteform encapsulating Al. Recorded AE activity revealed the possibility for classification and differentiation of detected AE signals with a potential relationship between the corrosion rate of encapsulated Al and the accumulated structural damage within the cement matrix.
