Acoustic Emission Testing Glossary 13 C H A P T E R
Image of page 6
Introduction Many of the definitions in this glossary are adapted from the second and third edition of the Nondestructive Testing Handbook. 1-15 The definitions have been modified to satisfy peer review and editorial style. For this reason, references at the end of this glossary should be considered not attributions but acknowledgments and suggestions for further reading. The definitions in this Nondestructive Testing Handbook volume should not be referenced for tests performed according to standards, specifications or contracts. Written procedures should refer to definitions in standards. This glossary is provided for instructional purposes. No other use is intended. Terms A acoustic emission: Transient elastic waves resulting from local internal microdisplacements in a material. By extension, the term also describes the technical discipline and measurement technique relating to this phenomenon. 5 acoustic emission activity: Number of bursts (or events, if the appropriate conditions are fulfilled) detected during a test or part of a test. 5 acoustic emission count: Number of times the signal amplitude exceeds the preset reference threshold. 5 Sometimes called ringdown counts .

    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.
