Paper Abstract

This paper describes the use of an Electro-Optic Holography system for measuring vibration patterns on diffusely reflecting objects. The system provides a high-quality display of fringes for identifying modal frequencies and setting vibration levels after which image brightness data can be transferred to a host computer. A bias vibration is introduced into the illumination beam to shift the 0 fringes so that fringe shift algorithms can be used to determine vibration amplitude. Using this approach, high spatial density displacement fields for vibrating objects were obtained directly form the time-average interferograms recorded by the Electro-Optic Holography system. These results show good correlation with the reconstructions from the holograms and with the vibration characteristics predicted by the Finite Element Methods.
