In this study, experimental and numerical investigations have been conducted to explore the possibility of using A0 mode in Lamb waves to detect the position of delamination in carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) laminated beams. An experimental technique for exciting and sensing the pure A0 mode has been developed. By measuring the propagation speed of A0 mode and traveling time of a signal reflected from the delamination, its location can be identified experimentally and numerically. Moreover, the numerical analysis has been extended to gain a better understanding of the complex interaction between A0 mode and a long delamination case.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
