Paper Abstract

This paper briefly reviews present situation on optical fiber-speckle method used for measuring displacements or deformations of an object, and the optical fiber-digital white light speckle patterns correlation method for whole field displacement measurement on a remote surface of a trial object is revealed. The principle of correlation method is demonstrated. A special program for image correlation analysis by computer C language, according to the fundamental principle of digital speckle patterns correlation searching and reading/writing mode of MS4213 image board has been written. The set-up was that a coherent multimode fiber bundle (MBE) was used to transmit white light speckles on a test surface onto a target of CCD camera, then, using microcomputer, monitor system, the displacements on the surface have been obtained. Two experiments which were used to measure displacements of a rigid rotational disk around its axis and deflections of a beam in three-point bending had been made. The experimental results agree well with theory. We came to a conclusion that under the circumstances of a large displacement/deformation, the method contributed in this study has an obvious advantage in measuring a whole field displacement/deformation of a remote object or an interior of nontransparent structure.
