In order to measure the particles size in the test cell and because existing instrumentation could not be used due to size constraints and limited optical access, DGA Aero-engine Testing chose a non-intrusive technique based on shadowgraphy. The measuring device combine a high-resolution video camera and a 20 ns duration flash: the use of a ultra-short light source is essential for shooting sharp pictures of high speed moving particles.
