More than a Quarterly Century of Acoustic Emission Testing (AT) at TÜV Austria
The TÜV Austria (formerly TÜV Vienna) has been testing different structures, mainly pressure equipment, since 1977 with Acoustic Emission. I will not enumerate all the different tests, which are more than 20.000 till today, but I will point out, how the test method has changed on some typical tests over the years. I will also remind you on the different possibilities, which have been offered by the rapid development of the electronic data acquisition and treatment, especially during the last 10 – 15 years.
