Abstract:

The calibration and analysis of recorded pressure data are discussed. Many of the techniques and areas covered are also applicable to other types of gages, e. g., strain, velocity, acceleration, etc. Photographs of typical shock-tube data are generously used to familiarize the reader with the actual appearance of the true pressure pulse which has been modulated by the effects of resonance, overshoot, groundloops, inadequate bandwidth, and poor gage isolation.
