Paper Abstract

A streak photography technique is described to measure the velocity profile of a microscopic fluid stream forming a fiber in a spin line. Measurements have been made up to filament velocities of 400 meters per minute (image velocity of 8000 mtrs. /min. with 20x magnification), and measurements at greater speeds should be possible. This technique could be used with many existing high speed photography systems and applied to many velocity measuring situations.
