Abstract:Acoustic emission (AE) test monitoring is an effective non-destructive technique. In the paper, a new damage assessing method which is damage acuteness index for AE signal of PZT patches based on fractal theory was proposed. The damage index was deduced by the character of signal analysed by fractal theory. It is deduced that both the curve length and the fractal dimension (FD) of signal are related with damage development. The AE test of Pseudo-static experiment of a concrete-filled GFRP tubes (CFFT) was perf… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
