AE HIGH-TECH WEEK
Up to 5 Days
Module 1 only: $1,100, Modules 1 and 2: $1,320, Module 3 only: $1,100, Modules 1, 2 and 3: $1,550
training course is devoted to the high end of AE
technology. In this course we aim to understand the AE
signal and the signal-forming process. This understanding leads to exciting technological possibilities. The same signal-forming processes that once limited this technology can today be used to our advantage.
This course is intended to provide the advanced user with a scientific understanding of the information conveyed in the classic AE
features, along with insights and tools that will help to use them more effectively.
This course comprises three modules. Enrollment in one, two or all three modules is invited, up to a total of five days as follows:
- Module 1 - Monday & Tuesday, 8:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m.
• Wave Propagation: It's Role in Signal
• Signal Formation and Its Implications for AE Technology
Wave propagation processes have a critical affect on AE signals and all the measured values derived from them. Most often,
these processes are outside the control of the researcher or inspector. The first module of the course shows how to work with
these effects instead of being confused by them.
- Module 2 - Wednesday, 8:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m.
Signal Features: Their Inter-Relationships and Dependence on Source Mechanism and Other Factors
A new program discussing the theoretical relationships between the conventional signal features for various waveform
models; it will be shown how this leads to practical techniques for source identification as well as pre-processing
techniques for pattern recognition.
- Module 3 - Thursday & Friday, 8:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m.
Classification of AE Signals and Sources Using NOESIS Pattern Recognition Software.
NOESIS is the premier software package for advanced AE data analysis. The user can explore the natural relationships within
the data space, using techniques such as principal co-ordinate analysis and supervised and unsupervised pattern recognition.
Much more than AEwin, NOESIS can be used to distinguish mechanisms, to separate genuine AE from noise, and to perform
real-time trending in the presence of noise.
Since this course often has only a few attendees, we may well be able to adapt the contents to meet some of your special needs.
