Summary:
Structural intensity is propagated through a thick structure by both in-plane and out-of-plane (transverse) waves. These waves propagate at different phase speeds and therefore it is important to distinguish the components of the structural intensity associated with each wave type. To show the presence of these different wave components, experimental results are performed on a thick beam. Using a frequency-wavenumber analysis, the different waves and contributions to the structural intensity are identified. The significance of the contributions to the structural intensity are a function of both frequency and thickness of the structure. Using simulated measurements on a thick L-shaped plate, the relative importance between the in-plane and out-of-plane contributions to structural intensity as a function of frequency and thickness is demonstrated. It is shown that in-plane wave contributions increase in importance as frequency or thickness increases.
