Description

This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Robust clustering of acoustic emission signals using the Kohonen network ' Acoustic emission-based techniques are promising for nondestructive inspection of mechanical systems. For reliable automatic fault monitoring, it is important to identify the transient crack-related signals in the presence of strong time-varying noise and other interference. In this paper we propose the application of the Kohonen network for this purpose. The principal components of the short-time Fourier transforms of the data were applied input of the network. The clustering results confirm the capability of the Kohonen network for reliable source identification of acoustic emission signals, assuming enough care has been taken in implementing the training algorithm of the network.
