This paper is a study of a new sensor for fluid characterization. This sensor is composed of a stainless steel plate in contact with a viscous material. The aim is to characterize the material viscosity by using reflected Lamb waves at the boundary interface. In order to identify the effects on the Lamb reflected modes by the viscous material, a complete study of the propagation wave in the alone plate is first presented. The propagation modes of the loaded plate are then investigated. By monitoring the mechanical impedance, the viscosity of the material in contact is extracted. In order to validate the experimental setup, the mechanical impedance variation is measured for different water-glycerol mixtures. Results are in good agreement with those obtained by other techniques in the literature.
