This page is a collection of links to interesting photos and other images pertaining to detonations, PDEs or propulsion related topics. I’ll update this page as I find more interesting pictures.
1. L3 Communications’ High Speed X-Ray Pictures: This is a collection of high speed x-ray photos of objects, such as guns, bullets in motion penetrating cans, cups, etc., a bomb, a shape charge penetrating an armored plate and much more. There is one photo of a detonation wave that clearly shows the diamond cellular pattern fully developed in motion. The pictures were taken on high speed film and with digital equipment. Very cool pictures.
2. Another resource for images of shocks and other gas dynamic phenomenon is the lab of Dr. Gary Settles at Penn State University. Here is a link to an article at Scientific American by Settles with plenty of awesome photos of shock waves.
