Inside you will find information on all our off-the-shelf instruments and
peripherals, covering both the AC and DCPD techniques
as well as information on our induced signal monitors,
allong with our wide range of accessories.
This short manual covers practical aspects of specimen connection
and test set-up procedures in ACPD studies. In particular, it
concentrates upon the use of the ACPD technique for long term
continuous monitoring of crack activity in multiple specimens or at
multiple sites on one specimen.
Most of the recommendations made in the text are based upon the
practical experience of Matelect engineers.
This primer has been written primarily to assist end-users,
who having determined that the potential drop method offers them the
performance and flexibility of an electrical method for crack growth
studies, remain unsure as to which of the two available variants
(ACPD or DCPD) they should invest in and utilize.
