Summary:
In this investigation acoustic emission techniques were employed to detect deterioration of reinforced concrete. As a result of various laboratory tests, acoustic emission activity was found to be due to development of cracking only. Acoustic emission techniques were able to locate cracks in a specimen by linear location. Various acoustic emission parameters such as amplitude, signal shape and frequency were also analyzed and discussed. It was concluded that acoustic emission techniques provided a feasible method for detection of deterioration and cracking of steel reinforced structures in laboratory studies as well as in a field environment.
