Background

A description of the experience

THE METAL-BENDERS” by JOHN B. HASTED

One modern metallurgical technique not yet exploited by Dr Crussard or by ourselves is that of acoustic emission. The ultrasound pulses emitted during microfracture events at grain boundaries can be recorded with a modern transducer, transferred to magnetic tape, and subsequently inspected and photographed on an oscilloscope trace.

In this way one can distinguish between single and multiple grain boundary fractures, and also distinguish twinning.

Dr Ronald Hawke [Lawrence Livermore Radiation Laboratory, California, private communication, 1977] has conducted no-touch experiments of this type with a Californian metal-bender (anonymous); the signals recorded were all recognizable as single grain boundary fractures.
