METHOD OF ACOUSTIC EMISSION IN THE STUDIES OF CRACKING PROCESSES IN PLANT TISSUES
Krystyna Konstankiewicz, Artur Zdunek
As a result of plant tissue deformation irreversible physical processes that finally lead to the state of resistance, take place. One of these irreversible processes is cracking of the cell structure that occurs through cell wall breaking and losing cohesion in the layer of pectin lamella. As a result of these phenomena a signal of acoustic emission is emitted. In the present study the method of acoustic emission and its application in studying the processes of plant tissue cracking are described.
Key words: method of acoustic emission, cracking..
