Calibration of hot-wire probes using non-uniform mean velocity profiles

Calibration of hot-wire probes using non-uniform mean velocity profiles A simple iterative procedure is illustrated here to overcome two problems frequently encountered in hot-wire anemometry: (1) the calibration of hot wires at low velocity and (2) to account for the wall-proximity correction in the actual measurements. The low-velocity calibration method used an iterative correction procedure based on laminar pipe velocity profiles. It is shown that the use of this approach, together with a simple wall proximity correction procedure, provides a simple and accurate calibration of both single and cross hot wires, and gives reliable measurements. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals

Abstract

A simple iterative procedure is illustrated here to overcome two problems frequently encountered in hot-wire anemometry: (1) the calibration of hot wires at low velocity and (2) to account for the wall-proximity correction in the actual measurements. The low-velocity calibration method used an iterative correction procedure based on laminar pipe velocity profiles. It is shown that the use of this approach, together with a simple wall proximity correction procedure, provides a simple and accurate calibration of both single and cross hot wires, and gives reliable measurements.
