Acoustic Emission Terminology and Definitions Glossary English-English


I have created an electronic glossary of Acoustic Emission for popularization and education of AE method. It works with Balylon Translator and can be downloaded from
terminology section of the Portal of Acoustic Emission in http://www.muravin.com or soon also from www.babylon.com. Let me know if you want add/change/remove some of the terms and definitions.

It would be useful if such dictionaries will be created in different lenguages.
