Abstract


Acoustic emission (AE) method is widely used as a non-destructive control tool of vehicle points and construction and also as a tool for technical condition monitoring. One of the most important AE diagnostic technological operations is the determination of AE source defect coordinates. Modern defect location techniques allow detecting coordinates of developing defects with high accuracy and reliability. There are several AE source detection methods, but the most popular one is a signal arrival time difference method.
