Abstract : Three different 3D pneumatic probes have been built and calibrated in detail, along with two dynamic yawmeters and a geometrically identical pneumatic yawmeter. This paper discusses the aerodynamic performance of the probes and compares detailed steady-state flowfield measurements taken with the probes at stator exit in a transonic fan. C148 transonic fan research is supported by the MOD Strategic Research Programme and the Aerospace Division of DTI....
