The contribution gives an overview and is focused to selected industrial application of acoustic emission method (AE). The attention is given to the operative tests of pressure vessels and store tanks and application to testing the building constructions, namely to bridges. The contribution gives also a short summary of AE application to condition diagnostics of structures with rotary parts (bearings, gear boxes). It includes also some applications to the production technology. The overview is based on publications edited in last 3 years. The paper is destined before all to NDT professionals, who don’t use acoustic emission method in their practice and to managers who decide about applications of nondestructive testing methods in manufacturing corporations. The aim is to increase the interest of technical public in use of AE method in NDT practice. Key words: acoustic emission, nondestructive testing, pressure vessels, bridges, condition monitoring, gears, bearing
