Abstract:

A preliminary investigation on the applicability of the spontaneous Raman diagnostic technique to the determination of the temperature of the propellant gases in the vicinity of the muzzle of a 20mm gun has been completed. It was concluded that with the proper care, and the correct laser excitation wavelength, flow field diagnostics based laser light scattering can provide most of the information desired. In particular, the spontaneous Raman technique can successfully be utilized in the solution of this problem.
