Paper Abstract

A color schlieren system, which accurately indicates density gradient directions, has been developed. This system differs from the classical schlieren system by replacing the dark/bright regions on a uniform background with colored regions, each color representing a gradient direction. A component description of the system is given, with the formation of the color schlieren image being explained. The new system is compared to other color schlieren techniques, and photographs of schlieren tests are included.
