Because of the versatility of Acoustic Emission Testing (AET), it has many industrial applications (e.g. assessing structural integrity, detecting flaws, testing for leaks, or monitoring weld quality) and is used extensively as a research tool. Acoustic Emission is unlike most other nondestructive testing (NDT) techniques in two regards.

Acoustic emission (AE) monitoring of selected pressure boundary areas at TVA's Watts Bar, Unit 1 Nuclear Power Plant during hot functional preservice testing is described in this report. The report deals with background, methodology, and results. The work discussed here is a major milestone in a Cited by: 5.

An acoustic emission system has been installed on TVA's Watts Bar Unit 1 reactor to monitor selected areas of the pressure boundary during cold hydro-static testing, hot functional testing, and ultimately, during reactor startup and operation.

This is part of a cooperative effort between TVA and NRC Research to test and demonstrate AE technology. Acoustic data obtained from the No. 2 inlet nozzle during hot functional testing at Watts Bar Unit 1 reactor showed a source concentration. A cooperative effort between more» TVA and PNL is planned to evaluate the significance of the data.

Find more information on the MHC range of Acoustic Emission testing equipment. Acoustic Emission Sensors Holroyd manufacture a range of acoustic emission sensors and accessories which are compatible with our AE measurement and analysis equipment.

This includes structural monitoring and remote monitoring accessories for testing. Acoustic emission (AE) monitoring of selected pressure boundary areas at TVA's Watts Bar, Unit 1 Nuclear Power Plant during hot functional preservice testing is described in this report.

Due to the increased sensitivity smooth test conditions and excellent noise recognition are essential. When the test is performed, acoustic emission sensors are mounted on the tank’s wall around the tank circumference.

After the sensitivity verification of the sensors the tank is monitored for 1. Acoustic emission monitoring of hot functional testing, Watts Bar Unit 1 Nuclear Reactor /, by P. Hutton, R. Pappas, J.

Application of Acoustic Emission and Other Online Monitoring Technologies to High Temperature Gas Reactors RM Meyer BG Braatz P Ramuhalli SR Doctor January Prepared for the U.S. Department of Energy under Contract DE-ACRL Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Richland, Washington This report describes the acoustic emission monitoring performed during the ASME Section III hydrostatic testing of Watts Bar Nuclear Power Plant Unit 1 and the results obtained.

Highlights of the results are: • Spontaneous AE was detected from a nozzle area during final pressurization. The technology of acoustic emission (AE) testing has been advanced and used at Sandia for the past 40 years.

AE has been used on structures including pressure vessels, fire bottles, wind. Technical progress toward continuous acoustic emission monitoring of nuclear reactor pressure boundaries for flaw detection is described for this period.

A draft report of ZB-1 vessel test results was completed. Growth of machined flaws was detected by AE during both 65/sup 0/C and /sup 0/C testing. Nuclear power plants -- Massachusetts.
