A method for measuring longitudinal velocity and temperature fluctuations with a single wire probe is presented and the principles of operation verified by an analog computer solution of the finite hot wire, anemometer control and signal processor equations. Examination of the basic equations reveals that such a probe is best suited to the study of turbulent water flows, thus allowing high Reynolds numbers to be attained without limitations on frequency response. Inherent sources of error are investigated and the method shown to be reliant mainly on the initial accuracy of wire calibration.
