Elastic guided wave based evaluation is useful to detect delamination in composites. This paper reports a detailed account of guided wave interaction with delamination in laminated composites modeled using time domain spectral finite element (TSFE) method. Wave scattering due to different delamination positions is studied. Wave field near the delamination in different layer-wise positions is investigated, which is useful to further characterize and correlate the far field wave packet carrying the parametric signature of delamination. Off-axis delamination in composite laminate creates an asymmetry in the elastodynamic stress transfer. It leads to wave mode conversions. Sensitivity of the delamination to the wavelengths is studied. The outcome of this study indicates potential possibilities to use frequency-wavelength information to discriminate various sizes of delamination. Energy of the scattered waves and dissipation/conversion of the wave energy due to the defects depend on the resonance characteristics of the sub-laminates. Wave scattering effect due to length-wise multiple delaminations and edge delamination is also analyzed. The resonance patterns in the signals are analyzed with reference to the defect quantification problem.
