Abstract : A cross-wire probe is described for the study of turbulance in gas streams. The device comprises 2 single-wire probes clamped together. The wires are oriented with the aid of a microscope and a haemocytometer to reduce errors resulting from wire-angle deviations. A method is presented for equalizing the time constants of the wires to reduce errors in compensation.
