Acoustic Emission monitoring in the laboratory - data acquisition, processing and interpretation
Convener: William Flynn 
Thu, 27 Apr, 17:30–19:00

The analysis of acoustic emission (AE) and ultrasonic data allows scientists and engineers to monitor the patterns and mechanics of fracture growth during rock laboratory testing.
In this short course at EGU 2017, a series of talks will be presented on the recording, processing and interpretation of Acoustic Emission (AE) and ultrasonic data from laboratory rock fracture/deformation experiments. The course will cover all aspects from the experimental setup and data acquisition to data processing and interpretation. Case studies will be presented where the experimental results are correlated with synthetic events generated in numerical models for the interpretation of fracture mechanics at different scales.
