Paper Abstract

A high speed photo recording system is now being used in a basic study of crack propagation velocities during brittle fractures occurring in transparent materials. Velocity measurements of 7.1 x 104 cm/sec. have been recorded with time resolution of less than 1 microsecond. The camera, lighting system, trigger circuit, impact equipment, and planned future studies of brittle fracture phenomena will be discussed.
