Hot-wire anemometer behaviour in low velocity air flow



Hot-wire anemometer behaviour in low velocity air flow



Journal of Physics E: Scientific Instruments 14(1): 46-51



The behaviour characteristics of a commercially available hot-wire anemometer have been examined for velocities < 0.1 m/s in both horizontal and vertical air flows. The orientation of the probe in a horizontal flow was found to have a definite effect on velocity measurements, and a lower limit to the reliable application of hot-wire anemometry has been evaluated for a particular type of probe.
