Paper Abstract

A cine radiographic technique is being developed by using an inert rocket motor to simulate a burning rocket motor. Because of radiation attenuation in the object and safety considerations for the equipment in an actual test, a high-energy, high-intensity x-ray source was chosen. The source is a 10-MeV linear accelerator with an output of up to 2,500 R/minute at 1 m and a maximum pulse repetition rate of 240/s. Various fluorescent intensifying converter screens are being evaluated. The image from the screen is amplified electronically and recorded on a high-speed camera. This camera gives an output signal which synchronizes the linear accelerator pulse with the camera frame. The images obtained thus far are only crude representations of a resolution gage and a thickness gage superimposed on the object image.
