Non-destructive testing methods based on ultrasonic waves are one of the most popular methods for damage detection in structures. Of these ultrasonic waves Lamb waves are of particular interest for the inspection of large structures for various reasons. Therefore scattering of Lamb waves from flaws has generated a considerable amount of research over last couple of decades. Most of the work has been done using computational tools like Finite Element Methods and experimental technique. In this paper an analytical approach is presented to develop a fundamental understanding of the scattering of Lamb waves from geometric discontinuities in 2 dimensions. We have considered simplest of all geometric discontinuity – a step, as this fundamental understanding can easily be extended to corrosion or crack.
