    Abstract

    The industrial use of acoustic emission is presented. Emphasis is given to the characteristics of acoustic emission as a unique nondestructive testing method for use in the evaluation of the structural integrity of materials, components, and engineering structures. Several applications of acoustic emission testing are discussed.
