Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A correlation between the parameters of an electrical response to an elastic impact excitation of sand-cement samples and the surface crack concentration is studied. It is found that as the crack concentration grows, the damping coefficient of the electrical signal spectral energy linearly increases irrespective of the mutual orientation of the cracks.
