Abstract
We combine the operational advantages ofthe complementary techniques of electronic speckle pattern interferometry (ESPI) and laser Doppler velocimetry (LDV) for out-of-plane vibrational analysis. A cw laser was used in a fiber optic system to generate time-averaged ESPI fringes. By mutual phase-locking of the ESPI and LDV signals, automatic heterodyning of the ESPI signal was achieved (i.e., without operator intervention) together with compensation for unwanted nondeterministic out-of-plane whole-body motion of the object under study. Automatic heterodyning extends the operating range of time-averaged ESPI systems to higher vibrational amplitudes and reveals phase relationships in the object vibration. A practical demonstration of the technique is described.
