In order to study the cause of nonlinear effects manifestation during the flow of Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids in microcrack, stationary and non-stationary fluids flow in plane-parallel and plane radial cracks the experimental investigations were conducted at the unit allowing creation of the plane and radial cracks with different opening [8-10].
Since of energy is accumulated during the previous stages of loading, the microcracks are propagating.
There, it can detect the vibrations that travel through the athlete's bone as each microcrack forms.
The aim of this work is to describe the microcrack initiation process in 1D non-crimp fabric (NCF) CFRP composites subjected to 4-point bending tests, based on continuous monitoring of damage initiation in function of time of test with use of Acoustic Emission.
