A method for calibrating an acoustic-emission transducer is described. The acoustic emission transducer is calibrated by comparing its output signal with that of a primary standard transducer. A primary standard calibration equipment layout is shown with a photograph of the transducer. Facilities for the calibration of transducers are described showing the block and related test equipment. Some of the results from experiments are revealed in an acoustic emission transducer calibration curve.
