Description

The UP Chainshot Visualization capstone team worked with Blount International to design and build a z-type schlieren optical system to visualize air density gradients surrounding a chainshot projectile. Chainshot occurs when a chainsaw blade breaks and fires a projectile, causing shockwaves, which can be visualized by a camera using the optical system. Blount will use data from this optical system to further understand the behavior of a chainshot event.
