Abstract

A new experimental technique to measure resonant frequencies of a target is presented. A Tektronix WP 1310 waveform processing system has been employed, which features signal processing software with extensive control over instruments, waveform manipulations, and graphic display. Numerous transient waveforms scattered from spheres and cylinders of various sizes have been recorded. A recently developed data-processing technique has been described and applied to these transient waveforms to extract their resonant frequencies. With the use of a new window designed to have a low near-sidelobe level, the modified fast Fourier transform (FFT) is shown to be able to improve the measurement capability of the system.
