Abstract:

The development of a Cranz-Schardin multiple spark source photographic system, with a maximum framing rate of 1,000,000 frames per second, is described. Major items involved in the system are triggerable air-gap spark light sources, a solid state delay network, a converted portrait camera, associated optics, and mounting methods for the system. The usage and limitation of the system are also described. It is especially adapted to the study of such events as bubble collapse and high-velocity liquid impacts, and can be used in Schleiren or shadowgraph studies. Author
