Abstract:

Fluid-flow measuring devices intended for full scale use were designed and tested. One device consisted of a rake supporting different types of pitot tubes. This will be used to obtain a velocity profile of the boundary layer of a test ship. The other device was a five hole pitot tube that will be used in a wake survey. The presssure transport medium i.e. the medium that carried the pressure signal from the pitot tube to the pressure transducer was air instead of water. This proved to be successful as the results indicate. Author
