Acoustic Emission Damage Classification of Rotating Machinery via Intensity Analysis

Description:

Reference #: 01474

The University of South Carolina is offering licensing opportunities for Acoustic Emission Damage Classification of Rotating Machinery via Intensity Analysis

Background:

Acoustic Emission (AE): “the class of phenomena whereby transient elastic waves are generated by the rapid release of energy from localized sources within a material, or the transient waves so generated”. AE parameters can detect defects prior to the appearance on the vibration acceleration range for thrust loaded ball bearings. Acoustic parameters for the recognition of defects in radially loaded ball bearings at low and normal speeds.

Invention Description:

Acoustic emission damage classification via intensity analysis will allow you to monitor the state of a rotating machinery. It will classify the damage currently occurring to a mechanical object.

Potential Applications:

This innovation solves the problem of degradation to rotating machine performance, unforeseen costs and unexpected system failure.

Advantages and Benefits:

This innovation introduces high sensitivity, early and rapid detection of cracking, and real time monitoring that can classify the damage that has occurred. This will prevent degradation to rotating machine performance,

unforeseen costs and unexpected system failure.
