Vibration Analysis: High-Speed Stereo DIC on a Helicopter Blade
A helicopter blade was vibrated by a shaker with a sine sweep signal and imaged via two iX Cameras next generation i-SPEED® 727 ultra high-speed video cameras. For benchmark purposes, accelerometers were simultaneously attached and Simcenter SCADAS system was invoked to impose perfect synchronization between the accelerometers and the recorded images.
An optimized DIC analysis was obtained using MatchID Stereo Correlation. Frequency response functions (FRF) could then seamlessly be extracted via a direct integration between Simcenter Testlab and MatchID. Finally, the corresponding operational deflection shapes were determined. An excellent agreement between traditional sensor data and DIC results could be retrieved.
