Paper Abstract

This paper presents a qualitative and quantitative analysis of time-averaged projection moire vibration measurements for a plate and a cylindrical shell. It is pointed out that although moire fringes are generally considered to represent a constant contour difference or constant vibration level, in practice, variations in local grid pitch values on the test-item surface result in wide variations in measured displacement levels for given fringe numbers, which must be taken into consideration for quantitative evaluation.
