In-situ acoustic emission (AE) method has been applied to study of deformation processes of an AJ51 magnesium alloy reinforced with short Saffil® fibers. The analysis of parameters of AE signal revealed a significant difference in deformation mechanisms between the matrix alloy and the composite, respectively. It is shown that the AE technique is suitable for detection of fiber cracking onset.
