What is not shown in Fig. 5 is the setting for data acquisition, which is an important part of AE testing. The AE data acquisition setting includes settings for the gain, detection threshold, sampling rate, times for defining an AE event, and parameters for source location, amongst others. These settings should be determined based on wave propagation characteristics for the current material and structure, and the level of noise. Improper settings can affect AE system performance. For example, the selection of values for the threshold and gain can affect AE detection, noise rejection, and the dynamic range (the difference, in decibels, between the overload level and the minimum signal level) of the AE system.
Data processing and interpretation may be carried out at the same time, because the data must be assessed for significance to the expected structural © Woodhead Publishing Limited, 2013 26 Non-destructive evaluation (NDE) of polymer matrix composites response to the applied loading and test conditions. The evaluation process involves assessment of structural integrity based on the information extracted from AE data against criteria that was set for certain AE parameters and their statistical distributions.
A signal detected by the system is called a hit. The AE system records the hit counts and feature data of each hit. The events are determined by AE system software. There are two types of acoustic emissions as shown in Fig. 3: • • burst emission, which is the discrete signal related to an individual emission event; and continuous emission, which features a sustained signal level caused by rapidly occurring AE events. 3 (a) Burst emission; (b) continuous emission. Rise time Decay time Amplitude Amplitude [mV] An acoustic emission is detected as a transient wave signal.
