Th 9th International Conference on Acoustic Emission (ICAE-9) & 61th Acoustic Emission Working Group Meeting (AEWG-61) will be held in Chicago. The meeting is open to all individuals interested in acoustic emission technology and applications.

Talks describing AE applications in any field, as well as advances in AE fundamentals, sensing, and signal processing, are invited.  In keeping with the working group character of the meeting, discussion of work in process is particularly welcome.  Students may submit an extended abstract for consideration for the AEWG Student Award.

Topics will cover all the areas of acoustic emission research, development and applications, including but not limited to:
  • Wave propagation of AE source mechanisms
  • Infrastructure and health monitoring
  • AE for composites
  • Advances in AE instrumentation and sensors
  • AE for materials/structure damage mechanics
  • AE applications for large scale structural testing
  • Novel signal processing approaches
  • Material research, fracture and fatigue failure mechanisms
  • Geosciences and rock mechanics
  • Orthopedics and biomechanics
  • Manufacturing applications
  • Diagnostic techniques & procedures
  • Codes and standards development
  • AE theories, methods, validation and verification

Workshop themes:

  • Acoustic Emission instrumentation, data processing and nondestructive/structural health monitoring applications
  • Acoustic Emission for materials/structural damage monitoring and identification
  • Analytical, numerical and computational modeling as well as validation of Acoustic Emission source and wave propagation effects

Welcome Message

 

On behalf of the organizing committee and international advisory board, I am pleased to welcome the global AE community to Chicago.  As a native of the Chicago area, I am particularly glad to share “my city” with you.

Chicago is located in at the southern end of Lake Michigan in the central USA and enjoys direct airline service from major airports worldwide. While it is a young city by world standards (incorporated 1837), Chicago has risen to prominence as a global transportation hub, financial and manufacturing center, and locus for education and innovation at the heart of a metropolitan area of over nine million people.

The history of Chicago is intimately connected with technological and scientific innovations: reconstruction of the city following the Great Fire of 1871 included ten-story Home Insurance Building, the first tall building with a structural steel frame, and generally considered to be the world’s first skyscraper. In 1900, engineers reversed the flow of the Chicago River to protect water quality of Lake Michigan and enhance water transportation links through the region. The 110-story Sears Tower held the title of tallest building in the world from 1973 to 1998.

While Chicago does experience some lively weather, the appellation “Windy City” refers to the enthusiasm with which early twentieth century Chicagoans promoted their city.  At the time of the AE meeting in mid-June, we can expect warm, sunny days with the heat moderated by the cooling breeze from Lake Michigan.

Most attractions within the city proper are accessible from the conference venue and suggested hotels by public transportation, taxi, or rideshare service – a rental car is not necessary.

In the summertime, the single best way to see the city is by boat cruise on the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. A number of options are available, from water taxi service to narrated and catered cruises. The conference banquet will be held on one of the latter.

In keeping with the city motto of Urbs in horto – “City in a Garden” – Chicago has many parks and public spaces, most notably a series of interconnected parks and paths along the Lake Michigan shoreline, and a ring of forest and prairie reserves around the city limits. Several national and state parks and reserves are located within a 1-2 hour drive from the city. In addition, nationwide domestic air connections are available from Chicago’s two airports (ORD and MDW), making Chicago a convenient hub for an extended visit to the USA.

I look forward to seeing you in Chicago!
 
David Kosnik
Chairman, Acoustic Emission Working Group

50  years passed since the first meeting of Acoustic Emission Working Group (AEWG) was held in Idaho Falls, on February 8, 1968.
AEWG had its beginning in a discussion between Allen T. Green (then at Aerojet-General Corp., now at Acoustic Technology Group) and Jack Spanner (then at Battelle Northwest). Spanner arranged for a formative meeting of interested parties to be held in Alcoa, TN, on November 2, 1967.

The 12 people in attendance agreed to hold the first meeting in Idaho Falls in three months. At that time, eight others (T. Theodore Anderson, Thomas F. Drouilliard, Robert B. Engle. Robert G. Liptai, O.K. Mitchell, R. Neal Ord. Ronald E. Ringsmith and Richard K. Steele) joined to become the charter members of the AEWG.
