Wavelet Transform and Bispectrum Applied to Acoustic Emission Signals from Adherence Scratch-Tests on Corroded Galvanized Coatings
Wavelet analysis and bispectrum was applied to Acoustic Emission (AE) signals from scratch tests on corroded hot-dip galvanized samples in order to achieve the detection of corrosion products in pieces non reachable by visual inspection. AE signals were correlated with the fracture mechanisms occurring during scratch tests, while the contact force increased. Results were corroborated by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Energy Dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) and X-Ray Diffraction (XRD).
