Paper Abstract

Both framing and streak photography techniques have intensive development histories at the Cavendish Laboratory of Cambridge University. These have been applied to the fracture of materials, ballistic impact phenomena, rain and particle erosion processes, explosive initiation and propagation, the interaction of acoustic waves with cavities, and various fluid-mechanics problems. Illustrative cases of moire and laser speckle photography are presented.
