Development of a practical acoustic emission-based structural monitoring system
Acoustic emission (AE) systems have been applied to the monitoring of structures for more than 30 years. During this time, commercial AE systems have grown in both capability and complexity and this, together with the high associated costs, has limited the wider exploitation of AE techniques in the field of structural monitoring. Over the last two years we have explored whether simpler solutions might be usefully applied to the field of structural health monitoring. In this paper we discuss our approach and illustrate our progress towards our goal of developing an AE system that makes additional information readily accessible to civil and structural engineers.
