Acoustic emission source modeling

Petr Hora, Olga Červená


The paper deals with the acoustic emission (AE) source modeling by means of FEM system COMSOL Multiphysics. The following types of sources are used: the spatially concentrated force and the double forces (dipole). The pulse excitation is studied in both cases. As a material is used steel. The computed displacements are compared with the exact analytical solution of point sources under consideration.
