An Unsupervised Pattern Recognition Approach for AE Data Originating from Fatigue Tests on Polymer-Composite Materials

Abstract : Acoustic Emission (AE) technique is gaining more and more interest for structural health monitoring (SHM) in polymer-composite materials. Recent literature has shown that using appropriate pattern recognition techniques (PRT), the identifi,cation of the natural clusters of acoustic emission data can be obtained. This work investigates acoustic emission generated during tension fatigue tests carried out on a carbon fi,ber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composite specimen. Since fatigue data processing, especially noise reduction remains an important challenge in AE data analysis, a noise modeling has been proposed in the present work to tackle this problem. A Davies-Bouldin-index-based progressive feature selection has been implemented to reduce high dimensional fatigue dataset. A classifier offline-learned from quasi-static data is then used to classify the processed data to different AE sources. An adaptation has been studied to enable the classifier to generate new class, i.e. AE source, for unidentified AE events. With efficient proposed noise removal and automatic separation of AE events, the results of this work provide an insight into fatigue damage development in composites and then ability to health assessment which is necessary for residual life prediction. KEYWORDS: organic-matrix composites, acoustic emission, data clustering, noise reduction, feature selection.
