McKeon, B. J, Li, J, Jiang, W, 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 0957-0233


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.
