High-speed optical measurement for the drumhead vibration.


A high-speed optical measurement for the vibrating drumhead is presented and verified by experiment. A projected sinusoidal fringe pattern on the measured drumhead is dynamically deformed with the membrane vibration and grabbed by a high-speed camera. The shape deformation of the drumhead at each sampling instant can be recovered from this sequence of obtained fringe patterns. The membrane vibration of Chinese drum has been measured with a high speed sampling rate of 1,000 frames/sec. and a standard deviation of 0.075 mm. The restored vibration of the drumhead is also presented in an animation.
