Measurement of turbulent flows with a rotated hot-film anemometer
MetadataShow full item record
Numerous research efforts have been devoted to measuring the velocity characteristics of turbulent flows in order to understand the nature and physical processes of these flows. A new hot-film anemometer technique to measure the mean velocity vector and the six components of Reynolds stress in turbulent flows is discussed in this report. During the development of this measurement system, emphasis was placed on the simplicity in which velocity measurements could be obtained in a three-dimensional turbulent flow and on the accuracy of the acquired data. A Monte Carlo simulation technique was used ...
