Abstract : Modern instrumentation was acquired for use in Polytechnic University's Supersonic wind tunnel facility. The equipment is currently being incorporated in several on-going research projects dealing with development of non-intrusive measurement techniques, flow visualization, and pressure measurements in high speed unsteady flows. The major components of the research instrumentation include a Q-Switched ND: YAG laser, a CCD camera system with necessary hardware and software and a 16 channel data acquisition and control system with appropriate hardware and software. This report describes the basic function of the acquired equipment and the anticipated use of the equipment for conducting supersonic wind tunnel testing. (AN)
