A good introductory book on acoustic emissions?

  1. May 4, 2010 #1
    I am looking for an introductory book on sensing using acoustic emissions. Specifically, I am hoping to use acoustic emissions signals to detect tool wear (and classify the wear as mild, severe, etc.). Does anyone have a recommendation?

    Something with examples using LabView and/or MATLAB would be ideal.

    Have you looked in the materials or metallurgy section of your college library?

    Many texts covering these subjects contain chapters on acoustic emission, particularly the ones on materials testing.
