Abstract : Experimental results are shown which verify predicted response characteristics of terminations of transmission lines. Idealized, simple theory is used to determine matching conditions and reflections when not matched. Orifice termination, branch circuits, and change of transmission line cross section are considered. Special apparatus and circuits are described for making the necessary measurements: These include (1) a step-wave generator, (2) a transducer adaptor, (3) a wave bridge, (4) a variable tap, (5) a probe shifter, (6) flow dividers, and (7) a specially modified solenoid valve.
