The paper presents a method of quantifying the mode conversion of Lamb waves within a 1D structure from a notch-like asymmetric damage using both in-plane and out-of-plane velocity/displacement measurements. The method is applied to data recorded from a Scanning Laser Doppler Vibrometer, and likewise to numerical studies from a plane strain finite element model. A filtering procedure is implemented, and the reflected, converted, and transmitted waves are separated in the frequency/wavenumber domain, and then integrated spatially in the space/frequency domain. An accurate experimental technique for capturing the multiple components from a single laser head is verified. Based on an initial in-plane excitation, the spatially-integrated multiple component mode conversion coefficients are shown to mitigate experimental noise compared to single component mode conversion coefficients.
