    Abstract

    It has been known for many years that the fracture and/or debonding of Inclusions or second phase particles during deformation can act as a source of acoustic emission. A number of experimental studies of this phenomena have been reported. Excellent theoretical investigations of the fracture of an elastic spherical particle in a plastic matrix have been carried out and expressions have been derived for the energy released during fracture. However, there is little work where a direct comparison between experimental data and theoretical predictions can be carried out. The purpose of this paper is to report on the acoustic emission generated from the fracture and/or decohesion of spherical graphite nodules during the compressive deformation of nodular cast iron. The correlations of the experimental acoustic emission data with theoretical predictions will be reported.
