Vibrations-angeregte Shearography

VibroShearovis - inspection of adhesive connections

  • Vibration-excited Shearography is a non-destructive test method
  • Imaging of Eigen-resonances and local defect resonances (LDR)
  • Characterization of sandwich structures, monolithic fibre composites and ceramics
  • Used in aerospace, automotive and wind energy industries
  • Application in production and maintenance
  • Compatible and extendable with other edevis excitation sources and software modules

Principle of vibration-excited Shearography

Principle of Vibration-excited Shearography

Elastic waves in solids cause periodic surface deformations. These displacements can be examined both with time averaging shearography (qualitatively) as well as with vibrografie (quantitatively). Local defects such as delaminations behave like vibrating membranes and thus have their own resonant frequencies, which are usually significantly higher than the natural frequencies of the components. Vibrational excitation is also suited very well for very stiff materials such as ceramics.
