Abstract

Propagation of guided waves in a laminated plate is of interest for ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation of defects and for material characterization. There is a need for a thorough understanding of the wave propagation characteristics in such a plate in order to use ultrasonic means to determine the material properties, assess damage, and characterize defects. The problem is also of interest for study of acoustic emission.
