In this study, the damage evolution stages in testing AlSi10Mg specimens manufactured using Selective Laser Melting (SLM) process are identified using Acoustic Emission (AE) technique and Convolutional Neural Network (CNN). AE signals generated during the testing of AlSi10Mg specimens are recorded and analysed to identify their time-frequency features in three different damage evolution stages: elastic stage, plastic stage, and fracture stage. Continuous Wavelet Transform (CWT) spectrograms are used for the processing of the AE signals. The AE signals from each of these stages are then used for training a CNN based on SqueezeNet. Moreover, k-fold cross validation is implemented while training the modified SqueezeNet to improve the classification efficiency of the network. The trained network shows promising results in classifying the AE signals from different damage evolution stages.

Abstract

In this study, the damage evolution stages in testing AlSi10Mg specimens manufactured using Selective Laser Melting (SLM) process are identified using Acoustic Emission (AE) technique and Convolutional Neural Network (CNN). AE signals generated during the testing of AlSi10Mg specimens are recorded and analysed to identify their time-frequency features in three different damage evolution stages: elastic stage, plastic stage, and fracture stage. Continuous Wavelet Transform (CWT) spectrograms are used for the processing of the AE signals. The AE signals from each of these stages are then used for training a CNN based on SqueezeNet. Moreover, k-fold cross validation is implemented while training the modified SqueezeNet to improve the classification efficiency of the network. The trained network shows promising results in classifying the AE signals from different damage evolution stages.
