  A comprehensive description of the technique used to obtain a time series of the quasi-instantaneous transverse vorticity from a four wire array of probes is presented. The algorithmic structure which supports the technique is described in detail and demonstration data, from a large plane shear layer, are presented to provide a specific utilization of the by: A technique, involving programmed digital calculations, is proposed for evaluating transverse vorticity in typical laboratory shear flows from an array of four hot-wire probes. The computing scheme successfully recovers the velocity vector information from a wide range Cited by: 8. A four-wire array of (hot-wire) probes, configured to measure the transverse vorticity (ω z) in a turbulent shear flow (ū = ū(x,y)) has been described in a series of publications: FOSS [1,2,3]; FOSS, [4] provides the most recent description of the probe, the computing algorithms, and representative results.

The results obtained in a two-dimensional mixing layer flow are compared with laser doppler measurements by Lang [3] and Lang & Dimotakis [4], with vorticity measurements from a four-sensor probe. The design and construction of a miniature hot-wire probe capable of simultaneously measuring all components of the velocity and vorticity vectors in turbulent flows are presented. A brief description of the probe resolution and calibration as well as the procedure to solve the cooling equations are given.   Multiple Hot-Wire Probes: Measurements of Turbulent Velocity & Vorticity Vector Fields by Petar Vukoslavcevic (Author), Dragan Petrovic (Author) ISBN ISBN Why is ISBN important? ISBN. This bar-code number lets you verify that you're getting exactly the right version or edition of a book. A nine-sensor hot-wire probe is described which is capable of simultaneously measuring the velocity and vorticity vectors with a spatial resolution of about six Kolmogorov microscales just above the viscous sublayer in a thick turbulent boundary layer at a Reynolds number of R θ = Results from tests of the probe performance are presented to show that the three velocity components at.

The advantage of hot-wire anemometry is associated with its very high spatial resolution and excellent frequency response characteristics. In most cases, the probe-stem is perpendicularly aligned with the mainstream direction of flow. A particular type of hot-wire is given in Fig. For this configuration, the direction of mainstream flow. Spanwise vorticity measurements have been acquired using the compact four sensor hot-wire probe (Fig. 2) developed by Foss and coworkers, see, e.g., Haw et al. (). The two parallel wires record the magnitude of veloc-ity with a small (δy~mm) spatial separation. The sensors configured as an.
