Background Crack Growth Brittle crack growth emits acoustic energy and acoustic emission testing of structures is attractive for damage and remaining life assessment. Because it is often difficult to distinguish valid from false indications, conventional monitoring techniques are usually confined to representing each event by a small number of parameters such as energy, duration, frequency and time of occurrence. For this reason, it is difficult to distinguish events. The techniques used, in which a small number of parameters are extracted from each waveform, neglect much of the detailed information presumably present in an often very complicated waveform. Technological developments in waveform processing hardware and software and in acoustic emission transducers have made it feasible to carry out fully quantitative acoustic emission analyses in real time. If the entire waveform is analyzed in an elastodynamic propagation model, the character and position of the source may be extractable from that analysis. This approach was proposed in the early 1980s but implementation was expensive. 1,2 After hardware and software improved, the problem of theoretical elastodynamic analysis of complex acoustic emission waveforms has been revisited.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
