Piecewise semi-analytical modeling of guided wave generation by piezoelectric transducers


Embedded piezoelectric transducers (PZTs) are used in Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) for excitation and sensing of guided waves (GWs) which have the advantage of propagating over long distance in plate-like structures. In this paper, a semi-analytical solution is formulated for representing through-the-thickness GW propagation in isotropic plates. The… (More)
