There is a need to measure local properties (velocity, pressure, temperature, density, viscosity, turbulent intensity), integrated properties (mass flow and volume flow), and global properties (visualization of the entire flow field). We shall concentrate in this section on velocity and volume-flow measurements. We have discussed pressure measurement in Sec. 2.10. Measurement of other thermodynamic properties, such as density, temperature, and viscosity, is beyond the scope of this text and is treated in specialized books such as Refs. 22 and 23. Global visualization techniques were discussed in Sec. 1.7...
