Ae/APh 104a Homework Solution Set #2 Issued: October 12, 2010 1/3 Hot wire (i) (a) To find the relationship between the mean voltage, E w , the mean fluid temperature T a and the mean flow velocity U , substitute for h in equation (2) to get E 2 w R w = πd w l ( T w - T a )( A + BU n ) and E w = p R w πd w l ( T w - T a )( A + BU n ). Find expressions for (b) the sensitivity, S u , of the fluctuating voltage output from the wire seg- ment, e w , to a small fluctuation in velocity, Δ U The sensitivity S u relates small changes in the voltage to small changes in ve- locity, i.e. e w As given in lecture notes: S u = ∂E w ∂U = 0 . 5 q R w πd w l ( T w - T a )( A + BU n ) BnU n - 1 ( T w - T a ) S u = 0 . 5 BnU n - 1 q R w πd w l ( T w - T a ) A + BU n = 0 . 5 BnU n - 1 E w A + BU n . (c) the sensitivity, S t , of the fluctuating voltage output from the wire seg- ment, e w , to a small fluctuation in fluid temperature, Δ T a , S T = ∂E w ∂T a = - 0 . 5 q R w πd w l ( T w - T a )( A + BU n ) ( A + BU n S T = - 0 . 5 q R w πd w l ( A + BU n ) T w - T a = - 0 . 5 E w T w - T a such that e w may be written as follows: e w = S u Δ U + S t Δ T a .

(ii) To reduce the influence of temperature fluctuations at a given U , you need to reduce S T relative to S U , i.e. you want S T /S U 1. S T S U = - 0 . 5 E w T w - T a * 2 A + BU n BnU n - 1 E w = - 1 BnU n - 1 A + BU n T w - T a Since U is fixed and you are told that A and B are only weak functions of temperature, you can make S T /S U small by making ( T w - T a ) large, so for a given experiment (ambient temperature) you need to maximize T w and run the wire hot. You could also consider using one of the techniques discussed in class, but it is difficult to separate the effects of temperature and velocity by another means, making output correction of filtering almost impossible.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
