Standard Test Method for Primary Calibration of Acoustic Emission Sensors
|Publication Date:||1 July 2007|
|ICS Code (Acoustic measurements and noise abatement in general):||17.140.01|
This test method covers the requirements for the absolute calibration of acoustic emission (AE) sensors. The calibration yields the frequency response of a transducer to waves, at a surface, of the type normally encountered in acoustic emission work. The transducer voltage response is determined at discrete frequency intervals of approximately 10 kHz up to 1 MHz. The input is a given well-established dynamic displacement normal to the mounting surface. The units of the calibration are output voltage per unit mechanical input (displacement, velocity, or acceleration).
