Paper Abstract

The Engineering Department at Oxford University has a history of designing, building, and operating its own devices. Highspeed photography has been no exception. This paper looks at the progression from novel home built rotating mirror cameras through the building of a 9 spark Cranz-Schardin dynamic photoelastic bench, including a typical test and a sequence of photographs using this equipment, to results from an in depth study into the dynamic behavior of a new material, super-plastically formed sandwich panels using the Cordin 377 camera.
