Development of Non-Contact Fatigue Crack Propagation Monitoring Method Using Air-Coupled Acoustic Emission System

Takuma MATSUO & Daisuke HATANAKA
A monitoring system for fatigue crack propagation was developed using a non-contact acoustic emission (AE) monitoring system. The AE signals generated during the plane bending fatigue test were first monitored. The AE generation rate increased after approximately 0.5 of the fatigue life ratio. The maximum amplitude of the AE signals increased with a tendency similar to that of the crack propagation. The sensor sensitivities for the flat and arced surfaces were then compared. The sensitivity...
