Description

Since the mid-1970s, several studies have investigated the feasibility of using acoustic emission (AE) to monitor the integrity of aircraft structural components during flight. These studies are completely catalogued in an annotated bibliography of acoustic emission [1,2]. AE has the advantage of being capable of monitoring large components with a single sensor, is truly a passive technique, and can be conveniently used in hard-to-reach locations. Successful development of this technique will offer tremendous savings by reducing the need for major disassembly in order to inspect critical load-bearing components.
