Abstract:

This section describes the salient features of a six channel high frequency transient recorder which employs three double gun cathode ray tubes. All units of the equipment are assembled into a single rack-type cabinet. The purpose of the equipment is to provide for independent but simultaneous recording of as many as six transient phenomena having high frequency characteristics which the usual galvanometer type of instrument cannot follow. A typical application is the problem of taking strain gage measurements of stresses set up in armor plate around the point of impact of a projectile.
