High order Lamb waves are investigated for the effects of stress on both symmetrical and anti-symmetrical modes in an aluminum plate for wave propagation and load parallel. Data are compared with those for the case of load and measurement axis perpendicular. It is the S1 mode which exhibits significantly higher sensitivity to stress than other Lamb modes. For aluminum the use of the S1 mode for stress measurement is found to be about six times more sensitive, than bulk waves, for the load-measurement axes parallel case and this compares with about ten times for the case of load-measurement axes perpendicular.
