The predominant probes used for measuring total temperature in a compressible boundary-layer flow are described. The results of a direct comparison between two of these probes, the conical equilibrium temperature probe Danberg probe and the combined temperature-pressure probe of the DFVLR-AVA, are presented. The comparison was made by testing the probes simultaneously in the nozzle-wall turbulent boundary-layer flow of the NOL Boundary Layer Channel at zero and moderate heat-transfer conditions.
