Paper Abstract

The present light sheet system for 3D studies of the location and structure of transonic flows employs a CCD video camera and digital frame-store which are synchronized with the pulsed laser so that the resulting images can be immediately displayed via microcomputer. These video images are digitally enhanced in order to display 3D coordinate data. An illustrative demonstration of the system is for rotating transonic-jet flow. The visualized images show instantaneous transonic flow structures.
