stress field

Hi all!!

If there is a specimen subjected to any kind of loading, i would like to find out how much load was applied in that specimen (most likely a specific point of interest) by ultrasonic technique. is it possible?

please provide me any advise.

thanks very much

Re: stress field
Hello Young...

What was the specimen
type, dimensions, wall thickness, etc...? There may be a way to make that determination with AE.

Re: stress field
Dear Young

as Kris already wrote, AE may help you by using the Kaiser-Effekt: if you (mechanically) load and unload a sample, then reload again you will not get AE unless you exceed the previous load level.
This is not generally true under all circumstances, but is used in different applications.

regards
Jens

l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
