Acoustic Emission - Land Speed Record wheel bearings

The AE technology that we employ at Motornostix, is provided by Holroyd Instruments who used similar on-line monitoring on the Thrust SSC wheel bearings.  These wheels ran at speeds of up to 8000 rpm when the sound barrier was broken.

Andry Green relied upon fault free wheel bearings at 760mph. Continuous condition monitoring was essential.  They did not specify vibration or shock pulse. They specified Acoustic Emission!

Andry Green has now embarked on breaking the next record: 1000mph. This time in the Bloodhound SSC.

Will AE be employed again? We certainly hope and believe it will be.
