An application of speckle photography techniques to unsteady gas flow measurements is presented. The instrumentation developed for the analysis of double-exposure photographs by digital signal processing is described. It is shown that 2-D velocity fields can be measured even when the flow is not perfectly 2-D. Accuracy and limitations of these techniques are discussed.
