In this paper we propose an efficient way to post-process output data predicted by Finite Element (FE) or Boundary Element (BE) codes, when the scattering of Lamb modes by defects in plate-like structures is considered. The use of a general orthogonality relation is compared to classical post-processing made with spatial FFT. To get the amplitudes of incident or scattered modes, this orthogonality relation requires the numerical prediction of the through-thickness displacements, and stress-fields distributions, on each side of the scatterer. The distance between the location where these fields are predicted and the scatterer can be very small, thus allowing huge reductions in the size of the mesh. Through two examples, this orthogonality relation is used to calculate the reflection and transmission coefficients of a pure Lamb mode incident on a notch-like defect, in either an elastic or a viscoelastic plate. Thanks to efficient absorbing regions, the FE meshed domains are reduced to the vicinity of the defects, thus allowing several advantages of the method to be demonstrated in comparison to some weaknesses of the classical post-processing based on spatial FFT.
