Non-destructive testing - Acoustic emission - Equipment characterisation - Part 2: Verification of operating characteristic
This part of the standard specifies methods for routine verification of the performance of AE equipment comprising one or more sensing channels. It is intended for use by operators of the equipment under laboratory conditions. Verification of the measurement characteristics is recommended after purchase of equipment, modifications, use under extraordinary conditions, or if one suspects a malfunction. The procedures described in this European Standard do not exclude other qualified methods, e.g. verification in the frequency domain.
