Laser Tip Timing for Turbocharger Blade Vibration Measurement and Validation

Press/Media: Research


In the turbocharger industry, vibration not only has a direct impact on durability
and warranty costs, but also plays an important role in the end user’s perception
of vehicle quality. That is why an accurate measurement of blade dynamics is
necessary when designing a turbine wheel. Although strain gauging has been used
for this purpose for many years, it has limitations and so an alternative method has
been investigated.
