The difficulties in making turbulence measurements in liquid metals are discussed briefly. Attention is then focused on the problem of frequency response attenuation of hot-film anemometers by the thermal capacity of the thermal boundary layer near cylindrical sensors. A solution is given to the problem of heat transfer from an infinite cylinder normal to the potential flow of a fluid with a small sinusoidal velocity component. Application of the results to anemometer measurements is discussed. Some preliminary experiments on dynamic calibration are reported, and they are in reasonable agreement with the theory for Peclet numbers less than one.
