Mode coupling in acoustics has been observed in cases of acoustical propagation in wires, strips, and stratified structures. Instances of mode coupling have been detected in acoustical dispersive delay lines and theoretical treatement of mode coupling have been carried out for electromagnetic wave-guides.The phenomenon of mode coupling in a stratified structure is reported here for ultrasonic wave train in a propagation parallel to the layers of aluminium—water structure, in a frequency range of 0.8–1.1 MHz.The coupling mechanism is explained by means of the electromagnetic theory and waveform of the ultrasonic wave train transmitted through the structure is computed. Synthesized and experimental signals are in good agreement.

Le couplagede modes en acoustique s'observe dans le cas de plaques élastiques couplées par des couches liquides, ou bien encore dans des structures stratifiées. Dans ce travail on a observé un tel couplage dans une structure constituée de 24 couches altemées d'aluminium et d'eau. Pour une onde ultrasonore se propageant parallèlement aux couches de la structure, ce couplage a été observé dans la bande de fréquence 0.8–1.1 MHz.

Pour expliquer les battements que l'on observe sur le signal transmis on s'est appuyé sur les résultats obtenus en électromagnétisme dans le cadre de la théorie des modes couplés. Ces résultats prennent en compte la dispersion du milieu, ce qui explique le glissement continu de la période des battements.
