Acoustic emission (AE) and microseismic (MS) monitoring technologies have been successfully applied to material performance analysis, material detection, building and rockmass structure stability, and early warning in civil engineering. They have played an important role in safety operation of road engineering, bridge and railway engineering, tunnel and underground, water conservancy, and mining engineering. Further applications concern concrete pavement life prediction, health monitoring of towers, mine rockburst monitoring, rock slope stability analysis, hydraulic fracturing monitoring and evaluation, safety monitoring of hydroelectric dam, etc.
In recent years, AE and MS monitoring technologies have been used more and more widely in civil engineering, and their application environment has become more and more complex. The installation and arrangement of AE and MS monitoring systems, monitoring signal analysis, processing and data interpretation technology seriously determine the success or failure and quality of the application of AE and MS technology in civil engineering. Many challenges have arisen and meaningful developments have been made in recent decades. However, several important issues still remain, and more improvements can be made on the application of AE and MS monitoring technologies. Thus, we would like to propose this Special Issue focused on but not limited to the abovementioned themes.
We encourage submissions to this issue that focus on the New Advances in Acoustic Emission and Microseismic Monitoring Technologies in Civil Engineering. Original research articles and review articles in health and stability monitoring of civil engineering are especially welcomed.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Installation and arrangement of AE/MS sensors;
- Analysis of AE/MS signals;
- AE/MS source location;
- Novel algorithms for data analysis for AE and MS signals;
- Focal mechanism of fracture based on AE/MS signals;
- Health and stability monitoring of civil engineering;
- AE/MS activity characteristics in disaster development process of civil engineering;
- Building and rockmass stability analysis and warning based on AE/MS information;
- Application of AE/MS monitoring technology in new area of civil engineering.
