Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Herbert Oertel was well known worldwide as a pioneer of shock tube research. His wide knowledge on the subject is compiled in his comprehensive book “Stoßrohre” (Shock Tubes), Springer, Wien, New York, 1966. He developed and applied important flow visualization techniques for shock tubes, summarizing these in the book “Optische Strömungsmesstechnik” (Optical flow measurement technology), G. Braun, Karlsruhe, 1989. This book describes in detail the vast majority of currently used optical measuring techniques.
