Conclusion For every configuration that supports guided waves: e.g., surface waves (Rayleigh) waves in a layer (Lamb) waves in a film/substrate configuration (Sezawa) and if the free time-harmonic form of such waves is known, then the reciprocity theorem of elastodynamics provides a simple approach to determine the amplitude of guided waves that radiate from time-harmonic external excitation. For pulsed excitations such as laser generated heating, Fourier superposition gives the signal strength of the radiated guided waves.
