The paper presents an experimental application of a method leading to the identiﬁcation of the elastic and damping material properties of isotropic vibrating plates. The theory assumes that the searched parameters can be extracted from curvature and deﬂection ﬁelds measured on the whole surface of the plate at two particular instants of the vibrating motion. The experimental application consists in an original excitation ﬁxture, a particular adaptation of an optical full-ﬁeld measurement technique, a data preprocessing giving the curvature and deﬂection ﬁelds and ﬁnally in the identiﬁcation process using the Virtual Fields Method (VFM). The principle of the deﬂectometry technique used for the measurements is presented. First results of identiﬁcation on an acrylic plate are presented and compared to reference values. Details about a new experimental arrangement, currently in progress, is presented. It uses a high speed digital camera to over sample the full-ﬁeld measurements.
