Abstract : This invention concerns itself with a means for measuring and detecting the production of liquid droplets formed from unreacted rocket motor fuel. This is done by exposing a dye coated film base to the impact of a droplet fallout. The dye reacts with the chemical component of the droplets to record and retain an exact pattern of the droplets' fallout.
