Nonparametric density estimates used for multiple AE source detection
Gális, P. ; Chlada, Milan
Paper deals with the localization of acoustic emission (AE) sources by means of exact geodesic curves on 3D vessels composed of several parametrized surfaces. Precise arrival times of AE events, plugged in DeltaT/DeltaL localization is discussed. Two-dimensional nonparametric (kernel) density estimates are employed to obtain the localization maps on 3-D surfaces and the potential regions of cracks are visibly highlighted. This newly proposed procedure is applied to steam reservoir and other experimental vessels. The results presented are accompanied by thoroughgoing evaluation of their quality and practical usefulness.

Savin, A. ; Vizureanu, P. ; Převorovský, Zdeněk ; Steigmann, R. ; Chlada, Milan ; Krofta, Josef ; Baltatu, M.S. ; Craus, M. L. ; Nový, F.
The paper presents complementary methods for noninvasive evaluation of an exotic class of alloys possible to be used in medical prosthetics. The interest in this study is the analysis of Ti alloys with different concentration of Mo and Si, in order to make the elastic modulus and Poisson ratio reach values appropriate with human bones. The both methods, acoustic emission and resonant ultrasound spectroscopy are proposed as complementary methods for nondestructive evaluation of entire sample volume.
Analysis of acoustic emission source location precision for general sensor configurations
Chlada, Milan ; Gális, P. ; Převorovský, Zdeněk
Proper sensor placement is the crucial step and a premise for precise acoustic emission (AE) source location estimate. Using the algorithm for finding the shortest ways in discretely defined bodies it is possible to design three parallel tools how to evaluate problematic areas, namely the location sensitivity, similarity and ambiguity maps, available even for discontinuous or anisotropic bodies. To check the numerical forecast of localization capabilities for given sensor configuration, theoretical results were compared with the data measured on the real steam pressure vessel.
Experimental and finite element analysis of composite gun barrels
Mochar, Dominik ; Trnka, Jan ; Chlada, Milan ; Valeš, František ; Gabriel, Dušan ; Červ, Jan ; Vtípil, J.
In this work experimental and numerical investigation of composite gun barrels was studied. The history of the stress-induced deformations located at the center of gun barrels on the outer surface generated by impact loading was measured for six types of barrels. The obtained signals were subsequently evaluated using wavelet transformation. Finally, the finite element analysis in Abaqus and MARC software for optimum composite material M46J was performed.

Localization of continuous acoustic emission sources using time reversal procedure
Převorovský, Zdeněk ; Krofta, Josef ; Kober, Jan ; Chlada, Milan
A new solution with the help of Time Reversal (TR) signal processing approach is suggested in this paper. It allows planar location of burst AE sources under high background noise using only one transducer, and continuous AE sources with two transducers, both under high background noise from other sources. TR procedure was in this approach applied to long random noise signals for the first time. Suggested method was verified by means of experimentally simulated AE sources on a steel plate and tube. Source location results certified high robustness of suggested approach. Certain disadvantage of the new method is requirement of detailed scanning of region around a presumed source. Scanning may be eliminated if we use numerical simulations with TR signals put into a computer model of the structure. Localization accuracy of suggested procedure (approx. 1 mm) is better than the wavelength and transducers aperture.
Optimization of sensor selection for acoustic emission source location
Chlada, Milan ; Převorovský, Zdeněk
Similarly to Global Positioning System (GPS), location of material defects by acoustic emission method meets the geometrical dilution of precision (GDOP) phenomena. Besides the several attitudes how to mathematically express its measure and compare particular sensor configurations in accordance with desired location precision, recently proposed method brings extended possibilities for detection of critical regions characterized by strong sensitivity of location results to signal arrival time changes or errors. Analogically to GDOP parameter it yields the sensitivity map available even for non-continuous or anisotropic materials. During the computation it uses the algorithm for finding the shortest ways in discretely defined bodies, which furthermore enables to view the problem through the so-called similarity and ambiguity maps.

Verification of diagnostic device using NEWS methods
Chlada, Milan ; Krofta, Josef ; Kober, Jan
Within the framework of the project „Verification of diagnostic device using NEWS methods“ supported by SIC, several calibration tests of newly developed apparatus for non-destructive testing of materials by NEWS (Non-linear Elastic Wave Spectroscopy) methods were realized. The report summarizes the results of characteristics measuring for case of particular components of the device and the demonstration tests of defect detection in selected structure parts.
Condition monitoring of thrust ball bearings using continuous AE
Chlada, Milan ; Nohal, L. ; Převorovský, Zdeněk
Fast and reliable analysis of continuous AE recorded during endurance tests on flat washer parts reliably simulating critical rolling contact fatigue of the full-scale bearings is presented in the paper. Two channels of continuous AE signal were partially recorded within whole specimen lifetime tests and compared with other experimental parameters as vibration rate or temperature. As an alternative to classical spectrogram analysis, we proposed to use histograms of time intervals between threshold amplitudes crossings in various frequency bands represented by the wavelet decomposition. Results obtained on long-time records are discussed, illustrating advantages of proposed AE signal processing, which can be done in real time to observe the processes before the onset of the final damage on the surface of the specimen more precisely than vibrodiagnostics.
