Dispersion behavior of guided waves in hollow cylinders (cylindrical waves) was evaluated theoretically and experimentally. Observed dispersion behavior suggests an assignment, different from the traditional one, of longitudinal (L-), flexural (F-) and torsional (T-) modes which are consistent with Lamb waves and shear-horizontal (SH) mode waves. The L- and F-modes of the cylindrical waves have characteristics which are asymptotic to Lamb waves and to waves in a solid cylinder. Experimentally, wide-band cylindrical waves in aluminum pipes were generated using a laser-ultrasonic method. Wavelet transform of the cylindrical wave signals was utilized for time-frequency analysis in order to compare them with the theoretical dispersion curves. For the L(0, 1), F(1, 1), F(2, 1), L(0, 2), F(1, 2) and F(2, 2) modes of the cylindrical waves, which were efficiently excited, theoretical and experimental dispersion curves agree with each other.
