This image was created by digitising a negative in the collection provided by Mr. C. Gourishankar's family. The negative was in an envelope containing photographs of equipment and instruments used for vibration experiments in the Machine Dynamics Laboratory of the Applied Mechanics Department.
This particular image shows a vibration test that was conducted to determine dynamic characteristics of 4-R Stockbridge damper used to control wind induced oscillations of electrical transmission lines.
Nearly identical photographs have been found in the same album under the photo IDs 001/0272/IMG_0228, 001/0272/IMG_0229, 001/0272/IMG_0231 and 001/0272/IMG_0233.
