Abstract

In this study an inverse procedure based on stress guided waves is proposed for the characterization of the elastic constants in waveguides. The characterization is carried out via Genetic Algorithms (GA) by minimizing the discrepancy between numerical and experimental group velocity dispersion curves. Numerically, dispersive data are obtained for a set of elastic constants through a semi analytical finite element (SAFE) formulation. In this pilot study, experimental data that can be obtained by post-processing the time-waveforms by means of a time-frequency transforms, are simulated. Results of the procedure applied to an orthotropic composite plate seem to be promising.
