Paper Abstract

The development of comparative holographic moire interferometry is accelerated by the need for nondestructive testing. This paper describes a holographic moire technique for the detection of defects that is based on a comparison of the responses of two macroscopically identical specimens. At identical loading of the master and test objects, the moire fringes obtained are areas of equal differences in the mechanical responses, and they form closed curves around the defect. The schemes of additive and multiplicative moire are studied experimentally, and their advantages and disadvantages are discussed. Comparison of the suggested technique with conventional holographic interferometry shows its reliability for localizing defects. The comparative method is contactless and is especially appropriate for nondestructive quality assessment of mechanical parts.
