Abstract

Acoustic Emission (AE) is a powerful technique for detection and analysis of the elastic waves produced by the failure mechanisms. In this study the different fracture mechanisms are studied in relation to the properties of the bricks, mortar and their interface. The fracture process is being evaluated using the AE technique. The isolation of the AE signatures of different types of failure mechanisms is feasible by testing unique bricks in flexure and brickwork couplets in compression. All the AE data received are analyzed with a simplified AE parameter-based analysis and used as input in numerical simulations of ultrasonic wave propagation.
