ISO - 18249

Non-destructive testing - Acoustic emission testing - Specific methodology and general evaluation criteria for testing of fibre-reinforced polymers

active, Most Current
Organization: ISO
Publication Date: 1 May 2015
Status: active
Page Count: 28
ICS Code (Non-destructive testing): 19.100
scope:

This International Standard describes the general principles of acoustic emission testing (AT) of materials, components, and structures made of fibre-reinforced polymers (FRP) with the aim of

- materials characterization,

- proof testing and manufacturing quality control,

- retesting and in-service testing, and

- health monitoring.

This International Standard has been designed to describe specific methodology to assess the integrity of fibre-reinforced polymers (FRP), components, or structures or to identify critical zones of high damage accumulation or damage growth under load (e.g. suitable instrumentation, typical sensor arrangements, and location procedures).

It also describes available, generally applicable evaluation criteria for AT of FRP and outlines procedures for establishing such evaluation criteria in case they are lacking.

This International Standard also presents formats for the presentation of acoustic emission test data that allows the application of qualitative evaluation criteria, both online during testing and by post-test analysis, and that simplify comparison of acoustic emission test results obtained from different test sites and organizations.

NOTE The structural significance of the acoustic emission cannot in all cases definitely be assessed based on AT evaluation criteria only but can require further testing and assessment (e.g. with other non-destructive test methods or fracture mechanics calculations).
