Pitot probe corrections in fully developed turbulent pipe flow
McKeon, B. J and Li, J and Jiang, W and Morrison, J. F and Smits, A. J (2003) Pitot probe corrections in fully developed turbulent pipe flow. Measurement Science and Technology, 14 (8). pp. 1449-1458. ISSN 0957-0233Full text for this resource is not available from the Research Repository.
Mean flow measurements taken in fully developed turbulent pipe flow over a wide Reynolds number range are used to evaluate current methods of correcting Pitot probe data. Based on this evaluation, a new form for the displacement correction is proposed which appears to be more accurate over a wider range of conditions than those currently available. The difficulty of obtaining the true near-wall velocity profile near the wall is explored.
