Paper Abstract

By means of classical kinematographic techniques overall spatial data about the object is obtained at discrete times, whereby taking into account rather poor accuracy. In the case of streak techniques a fundamental gain in accuracy concerning kinematic quantities is reached, but spatial information is low. A combination of both framing and streak recording leads to a measuring method avoiding the draw backs of either method. A standard 16 mm rotating prism film camera with a maximum of 50 m/s of film transport is driven as a streak camera, yielding recordings with the velocity vector of the object beeing perpendicular to the streak slit. By means of this technique pseudo frames are created with time resulution for the kinematic quantities in the microsecond region.
