Acoustic emission monitoring system

Instrument: Acoustic emission monitoring system

Location: laboratory 015

General information:

Home assembled system consisting of: piezoelectric sensors (Physical Acoustic Corporation, Olympus-Panametrics, Vallen), acoustic amplifier with frequency filters of 50, 100, 500 and 1000 kHz, digital analogue converter and a computer.

Characteristic: 

The optimal dimensions of the measured object depend on the properties of the material, i.e. how well the material transmits soundwaves.

For instance in the case of wood the range of detection is limited to 30 cm.
