Recently, a method to remove the effect of the shear distance from shearographic recordings by reconstruction of the displacement field was presented. Conventional phase- shifting shearography is used to obtain a phase map which represents an approximation to the displacement derivative. To calculate the displacement information of r a point in the final image, the phase values of certain image points of the shearogram are added. Applying this summation top all image points results in a phase map representing the displacement field with the effect of image-doubling removed. This manuscript concentrates on the experimental verification of the effect and shows the application to the measurement of out-of-plane as well as in-plane deformation. The method combines the advantages of conventional shearography and electronic speckle pattern interferometry displacement measurement. It uses the same optical set-up as shearography, which has proved its applicability in industrial environments, and delivers the displacement field with the effect of image-doubling removed. This displacement field is easier to interpret than the approximated displacement derivative of conventional shearography.
