Abstract:

The results of particle velocity measurements at TRWs 4 x 4 inch shock tube and at the CERF 6 shock tube are presented. At both sites, measurements were made in a dusty boundary layer induced by a shock wave passing over a dusty bed. The dust particle velocity was measured using a single component laser velocimeter at CERF. At both sites, the transient data was recorded using a 100 MHz digitizer. Processing of the data was done through software. The velocity time history of the dust particles behind the moving shock waves was measured at various heights.
