Abstract:

This note describes a method of calibration and use of five-hole flow direction probes. When used in complex three-dimensional mixed flows, the probe will furnish flow directions, velocity components and total pressures. The method described in this note is intended for the use of the wind tunnel project engineer in determining flow direction characteristics of various model configurations.
