We report the measurement of transient bending waves with double-pulsed-subtraction TV holography. The correlation fringe patterns are automatically quantitatively analyzed by the application of Fourier methods. A novel optical setup with two different object-beam optical paths is demonstrated for the generation of carrier fringes. The proposed system is highly immune to environmental disturbances because the optical setup imposes no lower limit on the time separation between laser pulses. One removes the linear phase distribution due to the spatial carrier in the spatial domain by subtracting the phase of the undeformed carrier fringes from the phase of the modulated fringes. Experimental results obtained with an aluminum plate excited by the impact of a piezoelectric translator are presented.
