Schlieren and Shadowgraph Techniques: Visualizing Phenomena in Transparent Media

Front Cover
Springer Science & Business Media, Jan 1, 2001 - Science - 376 pages
3 Reviews

Schlieren and shadowgraph techniques are basic and valuable tools in various scientific and engineering disciplines. They allow us to see the invisible: the optical inhomogeneities in transparent media like air, water, and glass that otherwise cause only ghostly distortions of our normal vision.

These techniques are discussed briefly in many books and papers, but there is no up-to-date complete treatment of the subject before now. The book is intended as a practical guide for those who want to use these methods, as well as a resource for a broad range of disciplines where scientific visualization is important. The colorful 400-year history of these methods is covered in an extensive introductory chapter accessible to all readers.

This book provides the definitive authority on Schlieren Photography from the master of the process of our age. This covers everything that one would ever want to know about the process and evolution of the theory, and is a key text in a subject rarely written about.
