The sensitivity of acoustic emission (AE) testing coupled with its need for relatively few sensors make it an attractive candidate for structural health monitoring (SHM). The vast majority of reported AE testing is case-specific making it difficult to apply results in a practical manner. This thesis describes a novel quantitative framework which links AE source characterisation experiments and AE-based industrial monitoring systems. The framework is split into two schemes to encompass both types of AE testing.
