Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: Six monotonic and six cyclic load compression tests on 6- by 12-in. cylindrical concrete specimens were monitored for acoustic emission. Fundamental data were collected and analyzed and the Kaiser effect was observed. The data are presented as counts versus events to aid in the identification of source characteristics. One multiaxial load (compression and tension) test was also monitored. The slope of counts versus event curve for this primarily tension test differed from those of the curves for the primarily compression test. This difference suggests that the source characteristics of concrete acoustic emissions can be empirically separated and identified.
