Book on wave propagation in thin plates

Who can tell me what is a good book to learn about wave propagation in thin plates? I would be interested what are the criteria for formation of lamb waves and the different wave modes. The more practical the better.

Thanks ---- Frank

Re: Book on wave propagation in thin plates
Here are some references to try.

"Wave Motion in Elastic Solids" by Karl Graff
"Wave Propagation in Elastic Solids" by Jan Achenbach
"Ultrasonic Waves in Solid Media" by Joseph L. Rose
"Rayleigh and Lamb Waves" by I.A. Viktorov

All are excellent references. You may have trouble finding the last book as it is out of print.

Also, Krautkramer & Krautkramer's book has a section on lamb waves.

TOPAZ® 64: Fully Integrated Portable 32 or 64 Channel PAUT Instrument with FMC & TFM

Introducing TOPAZ64, the industry’s most intelligent fully integrated, portable 32 or 64-channel
...
phased array ultrasound (UT) instrument. TOPAZ64 combines code-compliant phased array UT with the industry’s most advanced full matrix capture (FMC) and total focusing method (TFM) capabilities. Featuring the highest acquisition frequency in its class, high resolution FMC and a 12” multi-touchscreen, users can easily visualize even the smallest flaws. TOPAZ64 can generate a bipolar pulse that provides more acoustic energy versus previous models for punching through thick components. The result is a portable tool that delivers increased inspection coverage, more accurate signals, and the ability to handle all UT inspections in one package. TOPAZ64 is ideal for challenging applications in transportation, oil and gas, manufacturing and power generation.
