S03: Fracto-Emissions in Structural and Seismic Monitoring


Fracto-emission signals (Acoustic Emission AE, Electromagnetic Emission EME, and Neutron Emission NE) are characterized by extremely wide frequency spectra and are triggered by mechanical instabilities at different scales: AE from macro-cracks, EME from meso-cracks, and NE from micro-cracks. Experimental and theoretical contributions on these phenomena, which are precursors or occur during structural failure from the nano to the tectonic scales, are welcome.
