Measuring the velocity in a boundary layer with a total-head pitot tube

  • E. U. Repik


Results are shown of an experimental study concerning the effects of viscosity, of the velocity gradient, and of the wall proximity on the readings of a total-head Pitot tube during the measurement of the velocity distribution in the viscous sublayer region of a turbulent boundary layer.
