Corrosion loss evaluation method for steel structure was investigated by acoustic emission AE signals with characteristics of Lamb wave. Relationship between wavelet coefficient of S 0 mode of Lamb wave AE signals and AE source depth were evaluated. The amplitude of the S 0 mode becomes higher as the AE source become closer to the thickness center. Thus, the corrosion depth can be evaluated by the strength ratio of S 0 mode and A 0 mode of Lamb wave AE signals.
