In order to solve the technical problem of damage localization in the concrete damage process, the Computerized Tomography (CT) scanning test and Acoustic Emission (AE) damage localization test was carried out under uniaxial compression. In addition to the three-dimensional meso model, the porosity variation law of concrete pore or cracks at different loading stages are obtained. A damage variable is created based on CT images and AE damage points. A damage variable based on CT image and AE damage point is established. The results show that the change of porosity, pore volume and damage variable is consistent with the loading process. The rapid increase of concrete pore volume and damage variable can be the precursor of concrete damage. The whole process of the development and evolution of concrete cracks was observed and analyzed comprehensively by using the three-dimensional reconstruction images and acoustic emission damage location map. A new method for analyzing the evolution and localization of cracks in concrete is presented.
