Abstract : High speed motion pictures, holography and measurements of scattered laser light are being used to study the behavior of particulate matter in the combustion products in solid rocket propellants. An automated data retrieval system for obtaining particulate data from reconstructed holograms is also under development. Progress on all phases of this continuing effort are discussed.
