Hello Junho

The lateral wave in TOFD is the longitudinal wave which runs directly between the transmitting and the receiving probes just sub-surface. On the unrectified A-scan it appears (with the correct set-up) as the first RF pulse after the initial pulse (main bang). This shows as an alternating positive/negative-going cycles on the B-scan display.

Hope this helps.

The lateral wave is as Nigel described it. You might find the images in a paper presented by Prof. Honarvar useful in understanding the components

Hello Jhuno, I could be interesting for you the next link:

http://www.autsolutions.net/Creeping-waves.html

It’s a excellent explanation prepared for Mr. Ginzel and Mr. Blanshan about creeping wave where you can also understand the lateral wave since they terms are deeply connected.

Another very interesting link
