Use of acoustic emission for testing resistance of hooves
MetadataShow full item record
This paper deals with the possibility of using an acoustic emission method for testing tensile strength of hooves. By using the acoustic emission (AE) method, we are able to locate degraded areas in hooves and then estimate the extent of degradation. In the experimental part, a sensor was used to record the emission signals, the measured data were processed and analysed, and the response of hooves to the applied mechanical load over time was monitored. Altogether, three samples were tested on the Zwick Z050/TH 3A materials testing machine and simultaneously the acoustic emissions were measured during testing.
