This report discusses a method of determining relative radiation density and temperature distribution of rocket exhaust flames by photographic methods. Total radiant-energy data is obtained from a photographic negative and, by graphical differentiation and integration, is converted to relative radiation density. Temperature distribution is calculated upon the basis of an assumed temperature at a known position in the flame. Flame dimensions and node positions of several motor runs are presented for completeness.
