Abstract
Recently there has been an increasing interest in the application of shearography for modal analysis of vibrating objects. New interferometric systems, which are simple and flexible are of interest for engineering and industrial applications. An electronic speckle pattern shearing interferometer (ESPSI) with a very simple shearing device is used for study of vibrations. The shearing device consists of two partially reflective glass plates. The reflection coefficients of the coatings are 0.3 and 0.7 respectively. The distance between the two glass plates controls the size of the shear. The versatility of this simple shearing interferometer is shown. It is demonstrated that the ESPSI system can be used for vibration measurements and phase-shifting implemented for fringe analysis. The results obtained are promising for future applications of the system for modal analysis.
