Experimental modal analysis of multifrequency vibration requires a measurement system with appropriate temporal and spatial resolution to recover the mode shapes. To fully understand the vibration it is necessary to be able to measure not only the vibration amplitude but also the vibration phase. We describe a multipoint laser vibrometer that is capable of… (More)
AMERICAN FAMILY PHYSICIAN 1103 pressure, and cautioned not to hyperventilate, because hyperventilating will lower the opening pressure. Normal opening pressure ranges from 10 to 100 mm H 2 0 in young children, 60 to 200 mm H 2 0 after eight years of age, and up to 250 mm H 2 0 in obese patients. 2 Intracranial hypoten-sion is defined as an opening pressure… (More)
