Abstract

Ultrasonic guided waves have become widely used in a variety of nondestructive evaluation applications due to their efficiency in defect detection, ability to inspect hidden areas, and other reasons. With a thorough understanding of guided wave mechanics, researchers can predict which guided wave modes will have a high probability of success in a particular nondestructive evaluation application. However, work continues to find optimal mode and frequency selection. An "optimal" mode could give the highest sensitivity to defects or the greatest penetration power, increasing inspection efficiency. In this work, we consider the use of guided interface waves for bond evaluation. A phased comb array transducer is used to sweep in the phase velocity - frequency space in an effort to determine optimal modes.
