In-situ non-destructive monitoring of water flow in damaged agricultural pipeline by AE
Deterioration of water-flow function in a pipeline system has resulted from water-leak accidents due to damage accumulation in pipe materials. The repaired pipeline system cannot be evaluated of water-leak phenomena under the inner water pressure condition. Non destructive evaluation of water-flow function in pipeline system is currently in urgent demand. In this study, acoustic emission (AE) method is applied to the evaluation of water-flow function in an existing agricultural pipeline, which was inspected and then repaired after water-leak accidents. At three conditions, experiments were ...
