Abstract

Acoustic emission (AE) technique was applied to detect four ethylene tanks in a chemical plant. Based on the testing data, the AE sources were located and synthetically graded. Then the conventional testing methods were used to reinspect the acoustic emission sources. The reinspected results indicate that two cracks near the saddle are unaccepted and the others are faultless. The AE test results have good consistency with the reinspection results.
