Paper Abstract

This paper deals with high-speed photography employed in the latest type of ground simulation facility -- the aeroballistic track facility. Two such test facilities are operational in the von Karmgn Gas Dynamics Facility (VKF), and ultra high-speed laser photography, photopyrometry using image intensifiers, X-ray shadowgraph photography, and other more conventional photography serve as primary measurement systems. Descriptions of these systems are given, and photographic examples of their applications in the track facilities are provided.
