Hot-wire anemometer is a method of
measuring fluid velocities at a single point by measuring heat transfer rate
from a small wire or film immersed in the fluid. The rate at which heat is
removed from the sensor due to the fluid flowing over it is directly related to
the velocity of the fluid at that location. Hot-wire anemometry can be constant
voltage or constant temperature. The advantages of thermal anemometry include
high accuracy, an easily-automated collection procedure, and a high frequency
response allowing measurement of turbulent flows. At UWAL, for the research work
constant temperature boundary layer hot-wire, cross wire are used extensively.
UWAL has 8 channel of AN-1003 constant temperature hot-wire
