This paper examines a promising new application of the proven technique of holographic interferometry for the measurement and analysis of both out-of-plane and in-plane vibration of a twin calliper disc brake generating noise at 2200 Hz. The standard technique of holographic interferometry has been developed such that both separate dynamic images of the in-plane and out-of-plane vibration, together with a combined dynamic image indicating absolute displacement may be represented. The results show the disc modes to be extremely complex for the twin calliper system, and further indicate that the in-plane vibration amplitudes are significantly larger in magnitude than out-of-plane vibration amplitudes.
