Abstract: Many vibration engineers are now familiar with single beam Laser Vibrometers which are suitable for translational vibration measurements but fewer are familiar with Laser Vibrometers with a pair of parallel probe beams which are used for rotational vibration measurements. This paper explains why the parallel beam configuration is so effective, comparing this with early uses of cross-beam arrangements and concluding with an application of these so-called ‘Rotational Vibrometers’ in the evaluation of a torsional absorber using modal analysis.
