Thermal anemometry is a classic flow-velocity measurement technique that is known to suffer from the inability to discern the flow direction. The current paper describes an innovative approach whereby an oscillating hot wire is used to extract velocity direction and magnitude information from single hot-wire measurements. It is shown that the new sensor operates in one of two modes depending on the velocity amplitude of the wire oscillation. Furthermore, results from applying the technique to measure the phase-averaged velocity in an oscillating pipe flow experiment are presented. The results from the hot-wire measurements show good agreement with those from laser Doppler velocimetery measurements in the same facility.
