Paper Abstract

Projectiles in flight and explosives detonating underwater can be studied using this range camera system, which yields high quality shadowgraph images. Measurements are allowed of: the velocity, profile and attitude of projectiles in flight; the profiles of the cavities made by bare and shaped charges underwater; and the shock fields associated with these events. The cost of each complete camera station was approximately £6000 when built.
