Abstract : Instrumentation relating to liquid rocket and pulse jet propulsion research, known as Project Squid, is reported. Articles discuss an electronic chronoscope for measurement of flame speeds, the high frequency oscillator as a flame detector, photographic measurement of flame velocity in tubes, an FM condenser type pressure gage, high speed photography of flame propagation, water cooled total pressure tube, and variable-reactance transducer for measurement of displacement. High speed motion photography of Schlieren patterns, which are methods for observing flow in flame tubes, was also described.
