Abstract:Digital holographic interferometry is the state-of-the-art technique in holography having applications in the fields of non-destructive testing, flow analysis and vibration measurement covering a wide range from huge aerospace structures to micro objects such as MEMS[
In holographic non-destructive testing (HNDT), transient thermal loading is an extensively used method of stressing the objects for defect detection[
In this paper the development of a digital hologram processing system which can record a digital hologram in high speed and generate holographic interferograms and shearograms simultaneously is reported. The design of the high-speed image processing system and selection of digital camera is also explained. The paper also gives details of the software developed and its features. The need for the high-speed system to record and generate interferograms during NDT of highly porous materials is also demonstrated in this paper.
