Abstract: A hybrid method is presented for analyzing ultrasonic wave scattering of plane strain waves by a crack in a composite plate. The hybrid method combines a finite element formulation in a bounded interior region with a wave function expansion representation in an unbounded exterior region. The technique presented here is useful for characterizing cracks in laminated composite plates.
