I have two processes, one is normal and the other with some cracks of material. And I have the acoustic signals got from the materials by a sensor. I want to compare these signals to see if this signal can be used to detect cracks. I think two different processes (with and without cracks) will create two different signals. Based on that, I want to compare these signals, but I'm new to DSP.
Could you please give me some suggestions what I should do, step by step to process these signals?
(I will of course read books to get knowledge about DSP, but it's really huge. I therefore hope that someone can tell me what I should do, step by step to process those signals. By doing so, I can save some time)
