On the propagation of Lamb Waves in Viscoelastic Composites for SHM Applications

Abstract:

Article Preview

This paper presents a theoretical model for anisotropic wave attenuation in composites. The model has been implemented in a software called FIBREWAVE in order to predict dispersion and attenuation of A0 Lamb wave modes. The required input data are the complex stiffness matrix coefficients of the unidirectional plies of the composites, which have been measured by an immersion technique. Good agreement has been observed between predicted and experimental group velocities and wave attenuations.
