Abstract
Studies of the transient expansion of jet gases have begun. The work includes a review of optical techniques for investigating gaseous flows and a review of numerical modelling of such flows. To examine the flows a prototype gas pulsing system has been constructed. The system involves a solenoid valve overdriven to achieve sub-millisecond opening times and modified to achieve closure with similar speed. Open times are from 3 to 16 ms. The pulse is observed with a piezoelectric pressure gauge mounted on a hypodermic syringe as a probe. Visual observation have been made using two mirror laser schlieren and laser "light slicing" techniques. Maps of the pressure field have been made and photos of "relatively fast" and "relatively slow" steady flows have been made. A flashlamp illumination system is under construction for time resolved schlieren and light slicing observations. Future work suggestions are outlined.
