Abstract Electromagnetic acoustic transducers (EMATs) are versatile non-contact ultrasonic transducers with relatively low transduction efficiency. A fundamental problem not answered completely yet is how the structure of an EMAT influences the generation of various Lamb wave modes. We tackle this problem with fully coupled frequency domain EMAT models where the underlying integro-differential equations are solved directly and the magnitudes of the phasors of the displacement components at a point in the middle plane of a plate are used to represent the strength of the S0 and A0 mode waves. Idealized single-wire, two-wire and wire bundle EMATs with uniform bias ...
