This paper describes the characterisation of the dynamic response of a range of pressure transducer systems. The transducers were subjected to virtually instantaneous pressure step inputs in NPL's shock tube facilities. The magnitudes of these pressure steps were derived from ideal gas theory, with prior commissioning tests having been performed to demonstrate the theory's validity in this application. The results demonstrate a significant variation in response obtained from various combinations of transducer, instrumentation settings, and mounting arrangement.
