Abstract:

A static pressure gauge, comprised of a transducer and a resistance bridge, for use in high-temperature 4000K, high-pressure 0.5 to 10 atm, plasma flow of short duration 10 msec is described. The transducer is electrically insulated from the flow and used when the plasma is 1 kV above the instrumentation reference. The gauge output is free of negative pickup when used in a 4. 0-Wbsq m time-varying, crow-barred sinusoidal negative field of 4-msec quarter wavelength. Author
