A formed laser source, using a four-element lenticular array, is used in the ablative regime to generate select, narrowband, acoustic plate waves. The arrangement of the array produces acoustical signals that have frequencies compatible with the response of the broadband capacitive air-coupled transducer used in this study. A simplified concept is presented to explain the effect of a line array source on the frequency content of acoustic waves. The analytical model for a point pulse surface displacement is derived from the point load solution to Lamb's problem. The point pulse displacement elements of a line array source are summed mathematically, taking into account all applicable propagation modes and dispersion of plate waves. The model considers only the out-of-plane displacement of the antisymmetric plate modes to represent the detection capability of the broadband receiver. The distribution function of the laser beam energy profile is modified to depict the actual energy distribution that illuminates the surface of the plate. Filtering functions are made compatible with the sensitivity of the broadband receiver so as to retain only the detected frequencies in the model. The theoretical model showed good agreement with experimental results.
