    Abstract

    A cinefluorographic system developed for the study of internal burning of rocket motors during static tests is described.This system uses a 9-in. image intensifier tube with a light intensification of approximately 2000 coupled to a 35-mm movie camera. A 250-kvp, 5-ma X-ray machine is used to penetrate a 5-in. diameter test motor containing voids and cracks. Performance data of the cinefluorographic system at X-ray energies of 250, 1000, and 2000 kvp and 10 Mev are presented.
