Non Contact Vibration Measurements on Parabolic Surface Antenna

Open access


In this paper it is present a non contact method for 3D measurements on parabolic surface antenna. In order to obtain modal parameters and modal shapes of a parabolic surface antenna a Microflown USP (Ultimate Sound Probe) is used. Microflown sensors are close to antenna and can be used for the non contact measurement of the normal component of the structural velocity.
