Impulse excitation technique as a
reliable and easy accessible
mechanical spectroscopy tool
Manual and automated impulse
excitation measurements at room
Specialized furnaces for impulse
excitation measurements up to
1700 ˚C in different atmospheres
Non-destructive testing based on
the impulse excitation technique
up to 1500 ˚C in vacuum
Mechanical spectroscopy based on
impulse excitation between -50 ˚C
and 800 ˚C in vacuum
The principles of the impulse excitation technique and the calculation of the elastic properties are discussed.
Some examples of typical impulse excitation experiments are shown and discussed in detail.
