Full-field high frequency vibration measurements

Dynamic characterization of vibrating targets represents a critical issue for many industrial fields. Full-field methods are of great interest in representing the whole structure response. The research activity is focused on the development of a stereo-camera system integrated with a Digital Image Correlation (DIC) algorithm, in order to perform 3D full-field vibration measurements in the range of kHz. The system exploits two industrial low-speed cameras, and the Nyquist-Shannon frequency limitation is overcome by a down-sampling approach under the hypothesis that the vibration signal is characterized by a single known frequency component. Experimental results obtained from the measurement of several targets showed good performances up to about 4 kHz, with amplitudes in the order of 0.01 mm.
