Abstract:
A scanning Laser Doppler Vibrometer (LDV) can acquire non-contact vibration measurements
from a structure with high spatial detail in an automated manner; one only need redirect the laser via
computer controlled mirrors to acquire measurements at additional points. However, since most LDV
systems are only capable of measuring one point at a time, conventional scanning LDV cannot be
effectively employed in some situations, for example when the time record is long at each measurement
point or when the structure changes with time. Conventional scanning LDV systems are also difficult to
employ with impact excitation because there is considerable variation in the impact location, angle and
