inal modes. It is shown that when the beam hits relatively close to the wedge corner the incident field near the irradiated face can be approximated as a near grazing longitudinal wave of the Goodier-Bishop type. A recipe is offered for utilizing GTD (Geometrical Theory of Diffraction) to simulate the resulting transverse and longitudinal waves. The two-dimensional version of the above configuration is of interest in modeling ultrasonic Non-Destructive Testing and Evaluation. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
