Turbulence measurements in water have been undertaken using hot film anemometers in a circular conduit. Two different types of film probe were tested and the problem of drift of the calibration curves was carefully studied. A heat transfer law was established for conical hot film probes.
Some turbulence measurements, made at the axis of the pipe, were compared with the corresponding measurements undertaken in air flow. The comparison led to the conclusion that turbulence measurements can be carried out in water with the same degree of accuracy as those carried out in dynamically similar air flow.
