Schlieren System Enhancements at GRCThis presentation describes the latest improvements that have been made to the Schlieren systems at the NASA Glenn Research Center. These systems are used for the visualization of flow and shock structures in our wind tunnel test facilities. Improvements have been made to the optics, light sources and knife edges using the latest state-of-the-art technology. The eventual goal of this upgrade work is to improve the sensitivity of the systems so that they can be used to make quantitative flow measurements.
