Lamb wave based methods for structural health monitoring and non-destructive evaluation have shown promise in composite and laminated structure applications. Many methods have been considered, but exploitation of the phase of the propagating wave is a recent addition. Utilizing the phase alleviates the ambiguity of many amplitude and modal analysis approaches. This paper considered two-dimensional damage analogs in analytical simulations, numerical simulations and experimental studies. Additionally, this paper addresses the importance of proper filtering for successful spatial domain reconstruction. The phase gradient approach was successful in cases where modal filtering yielded good results. In the case where modal filtering did not successfully reconstruct the time-space domain wave, the phase gradient approach could not be employed, underscoring the need for robust modal filtering techniques.
