Abstract: An empirical investigation is undertaken in order to assess the potential of the AE technique for the detection of seal-to-rotor rubbing in steam turbines. Rubbing was induced at various axial locations along a 4 ½ tonne test rotor, rotating at 3000 rpm and supported by 7” (178mm) journal bearings. This paper examines the capabilities of bearing mounted AE transducers for the detection of seal-torotor rubbi
