Calibration of Thermal Anemometer at Very Low Reynolds Numbers under Microgravity
In the experimental fluid mechanics the hot wire and the hot film anemometry still belongs to the standard measuring techniques. This is because of the simple design, the easy handling and the high temporal and spatial resolutions. Thermal anemometers are therefore very often used for measuring the velocity components in different directions. They represent also an important aid in investigating turbulence and combustion processes.
