This work is the second part of three that presents new tools to be used for damage localization in plates by nonlinear acoustical methods. It introduces an important in-plane localization technique, which is based on the existence of resonant spatially localized wave fields. The wave from the transducer is acting as a dynamic influence on the plate surface, making the waves reflect in a non-ideal way. The non-ideal reflections make the modes underneath the transducer have different resonant frequencies than the modes beside the insonified area. They appear both for contact and non-contact sources. In the nonlinear damage localization application, the trapped mode wave field interacts with another signal at lower frequency. This results in sidebands around the high frequency whose amplitudes are related to the amount of damage underneath the transducer.
Acta Acustica united with Acustica, published together with the European Acoustics Association (EAA), is an international, peer-reviewed journal on acoustics. It publishes original articles on all subjects in the field of acoustics, such as general linear acoustics, nonlinear acoustics, macrosonics, flow acoustics, atmospheric sound, underwater sound, ultrasonics, physical acoustics, structural acoustics, noise control, active control, environmental noise, building acoustics, room acoustics, acoustic materials, acoustic signal processing, computational and numerical acoustics, hearing, audiology and psychoacoustics, speech, musical acoustics, electroacoustics, auditory quality of systems. It reports on original scientific research in acoustics and on engineering applications. The journal considers scientific papers, technical and applied papers, book reviews, short communications, doctoral thesis abstracts, etc. In irregular intervals also special issues and review articles are published.
