This thesis examines the role of Acoustic Emission (AE) as a non-destructive testing technique for concrete structures. The work focuses on the development of experimental techniques and data analysis methods for the detection, location and assessment of AE from the failure of plain and reinforced concrete specimens. Four key topics are investigated:
