Bounded Beam Interaction with Plate-Edge at Lamb Angle
There are many papers dealing with the scattering of Lamb waves at the edges of free and immersed plates. Nevertheless, since such Lamb waves are often generated by means of bounded beams, here, a study is revealed, based on Schlieren photography, of the interaction of a bounded beam, incident near the edge of a plate at the Lamb angle. The study shows that retro reflection occurs of the generated Lamb waves and that more complicated mode conversion takes place whenever the border of the beam reaches the edge of the plate. The difference is shown between scattering of the A1 and the S1 Lamb mode. Furthermore, it is shown that Lamb waves excite a radiating acoustic multipole when encountering the edge of the plate.
