Access from EThOS:
Acoustic emission and vibration data representative of wear modes experienced in naval air and surface combatants has been collected and analysed. Results obtained from data generated by four-ball testing indicate the suitability of both high frequency vibration monitoring and acoustic emission techniques for detection of scuffing wear and pitting fatigue wear. By monitoring changes in the frequency content of acoustic emission waveforms it is also possible to detect early development of subsurface cracking caused by rolling contact fatigue.
