In this work, we use the phase velocity method in combination with finite element method to compute the dispersion curve for phase velocity of an ultrasonic pulse traveling in a thin isotropic plate. This method is based on the numerical solution of the wave propagation equations for several selected frequencies. To solve these equations, a second order difference scheme is used to discretize the temporal variable, while spatial variables are discretized using the finite element method. The…

Numerical Solution of a Wave Propagation Problem Along Plate Structures Based on the Isogeometric Approach
Ultrasonic guided waves propagating along large structures have great potential as a nondestructive evaluation method. In this context, it is very important to obtain the dispersion curves, which

The reflection of a symmetric Rayleigh-Lamb wave at the fixed or free edge of a plate
A semi-infinite plate of homogeneous isotropic, linearly elastic material occupies the region x≥0, |y|≤1, -∞<z<∞; the faces y=±1 are free of tractions, the end x=0 may be either fixed or traction
Development, Validation and Comparison of Higher Order Finite Element Approaches to Compute the Propagation of Lamb Waves Efficiently
