Description

I'd like to start the talk with a brief description of this task on acoustic emission (AE) source identification in terms of its immediate aims and ultimate goals. The _immediate aims were to, first, identify the sources of AE in a variety of materials, making a survey of just where they originate, and their dependence on changes in microstructure. The second aim was to identify characteristics of the AE signals which might be related to these sources and, therefore, indirectly to the microstructural effects. These aims were realized for the materials studied. The ultimate goals of such a study would be the extrapolation of AE data from one test situation or from one material to another, and, ideally, to relate the emissions to a determination of flaw criticality.
