This procedure is used for observing a rocket's behaviour
during firing while it remains attached to the ground. This
procedure can be used when for example observing the flow inside
the rocket or the flow out of the nozzle.
Due to the high pressures involved perform
this experiment behind a safety barrier.
Air source. This includes pumps, tanks, compressors etc.
Static test stand
Cameras - still / video
Prepare the rocket by attaching the components to be
examined and fill with the appropriate amount of water.
Place the rocket on the test stand.
Ensure the rocket is firmly attached to the test
stand so it can not fly off.
Pressurise the rocket to the desired pressure.
Start cameras recording.
Stop cameras and record observations.
Ensure the rocket is properly secured to the test stand
and that the test stand is properly secured to the ground.
