Abstract:

The report starts by summarising the techniques and approaches used in this laboratory to study liquid impact, rain erosion damage mechanisms and the strength properties of window materials. Recent progress is then discussed. This includes i a recalibration, and extension to lower velocities of the equivalent drop size data for the impact of jets from the Cambridge single impact apparatus ii a summary of recent work on zinc sulphide, including the work on various coated systems. Keywords Infrared transmitters.
