In the past two decades, offshore wind has emerged as a new source of renewable energy. This highlights the requirement for the utilisation of larger and more efficient offshore wind turbines (OWTs). The connections used in support structures of OWTs are critical to ensure the excellent structural performance of OWFs. An alternative option is...

Desert sand acoustic emissions are produced when a “sonic sand” is sheared locally or by a natural dune slipface avalanche, resulting in a brassy sound between 50 and 400 Hz. This type of sediment exhibits particular granulometric, shape and surface characteristics, due to the grains’ erosion and transport history, and emits sounds when the...

Understanding the relationship between the sensors’ outputs and the damage evolution within the joints is becoming increasingly crucial to improving structural health monitoring systems and collecting data to improve the joint’s design. Therefore, a study of the acoustic emission method associated with visual fracture evaluation was proposed to...

Offshore support structures and mooring systems are predominantly subject to corrosion and fatigue. These structures are typically covered with marine growth of various types. Conventional inspection methods for assessment of the structural integrity require access to the cleaned surface of these structures; however, the cleaning process is...

By analyzing the failure mechanisms, crashworthiness characteristics of FW composite tubes subjected to two modes of progressive damage and catastrophic failure are investigated using acoustic emission technique and numerical method. The AE signals of ±45° composite tubes were classified using hierarchical and wavelet transform methods, and...

To assess the structural capacity of reinforced concrete structures, identifying the internal cracks is important. Acoustic emission (AE) is promising to estimate the location of internal cracks. However, the localization is influenced by many factors like arrival time picking error, presence of crack, etc., resulting in localization error. The...

The present study proposes a comprehensive integrity assessment approach for a full-scale adhesively-bonded bi-material joint for maritime applications. The joint represents a cross-section of the bond-line connection of a ship with a steel hull and a sandwich composite superstructure. The full-scale joint consists of a sandwich composite...

Considering the storage capacity and already existing infrastructures, underground porous reservoirs are highly suitable to store green energy, for example, in the form of green gases such as hydrogen and compressed air. Depending on the energy demand and supply, the energy-rich fluids are injected and produced, which induces cyclic change of...

The aim of this study was to find the correlation between failure modes and acoustic emission (AE) events in a comprehensive range of thin-ply pseudo-ductile hybrid composite laminates when loaded under uniaxial tension. The investigated hybrid laminates were Unidirectional (UD), Quasi-Isotropic (QI) and open-hole QI configurations composed of S...

This article presents an approach to identify naturally developed damage in low-speed bearings using waveform-similarity-based clustering of acoustic emissions (AEs) under fatigue loading. The approach is motivated by the notation that each recorded AE signal from a particular damage is defined by the convolution of the source signal, transfer...

This study presents a damage pattern recognition approach for corroded steel beams strengthened by CFRP anchorage system based on acoustic emission clustering analysis. The proposed method includes four steps: acoustic emission signal acquisition, feature extraction, clustering analysis, and damage pattern recognition. Four corroded beams...

Recent laboratory and field studies suggest that temporal variations in injection patterns (e.g., cyclic injection) might trigger less seismicity than constant monotonic injection. This study presents results from uniaxial compressive experiments performed on Red Felser sandstone samples providing new information on the effect of stress...

An increasing interest for Structural Health Monitoring has emerged in the last decades. Acoustic emission (AE) is one of the most popular and widely studied methodologies employed for monitoring, due to its capabilities of detecting, locating and capturing the evolution of damage. Most literature so far, has employed AE for characterizing...

Large errors can be introduced in traditional acoustic emission (AE) source localization methods using extracted signal features such as arrival time difference. This issue is obvious in the case of irregular structural geometries, complex composite structure types or presence of cracks in wave travel paths. In this study, based on a novel...

Monitoring or identifying structural cracks is crucial for assessing the health of existing concrete structures. Key information about structural cracking encompasses the location of the crack and its kinematics, which include movements perpendicular and parallel to the crack face. Acoustic emission (AE) is a sensitive technique for detecting...

This study investigates the mechanical behavior and damage mechanisms of thin-walled glass/epoxy filament wound tubes under quasi-static lateral loads. The novelty is that the tubes are reinforced in critical areas using strip composite patches to provide a topology-optimized tube, and their damage mechanisms and mechanical performance are...

The performance of the Acoustic Emission (AE) technique is significantly dependent on the sensors attached to the structural surface. Although conventional commercially AE sensors, like R15a and WSa sensors, have been extensively employed in monitoring many different structures, they are unavailable in restricted-assess areas. In contrast,...
