dc.description.abstract <p>A new method for high‐sensitivity non‐contact, through‐transmission, air‐coupled imaging of small material property changes or discontinuities in plates is demonstrated. Our approach exploits the excitation of the first‐order symmetric Lamb wave mode at its minimum frequency point of zero group velocity. Because this Lamb wave resonance couples energy extremely efficiently with the air and does not propagate energy in the plane of the plate, it is the dominant mode of transmission of an airborne focussed‐beam broadband impulse through the plate. We take advantage of the sensitivity of this mode by performing C‐scans at the frequency of the group‐velocity zero to image spatial discontinuities and property changes. Our results show that images measured at this frequency are more sensitive and more consistent than those measured elsewhere in the plate‐wave spectrum.</p>
