This paper deals with developing a parametric 2D finite-element technique, which can size strip-like defects in elastic or viscoelastic, isotropic or anisotropic material plates. A pure incident Lamb wave mode is sent towards the defect and reflection and transmission coefficients produced by mode conversion phenomenon are used as input data for the inversion process, which consists in quantifying two unknown parameters representing the geometry of the defect. A finite-element-based model is used to simulate the Lamb wave scattering for various values of the aimed parameters, and specific post-processing based on Shkerdin’s orthogonality relation is applied to predict the needed reflection and transmission coefficients. The target is known reflection and transmission coefficients initially obtained from an experiment, which can be either a numerical experiment for validation purposes, or proper measurements on a sample for NDE application purposes. The inversion process is stopped when the predicted reflection and transmission coefficients fit at best those obtained from initial experiment. In this paper, we have quantified two geometrical parameters for three types of defects in different waveguides: the through-thickness depth (or position) and width (or radius) of (1) a circular hole inside an aluminium plate, (2) a rectangular notch at the surface of a Perspex plate, (3) a cracked zone inside a composite plate, representing an impact damage.
