Abstract:

ONE OF THE MEASUREMENTS USUALLY MADE IN A SHOCK TUBE OR SHOCK TUBE WIND TUNNEL IS THAT OF SHOCK VELOCITY. Several techniques have been successfully developed in past years. However, all of these methods require a transducer which is inserted through the shock tube wall. A straingage system has been developed recently which provides reliable results without the necessity of machining the tube wall. A description is given of the technique employed and the results obtained. Author
