A high-frequency response dual hot-wire aspirating probe which can measure the time- resolved stagnation temperature and pressure in an unsteady high-speed gas flow is described. The probe consists of two coplanar constant temperature hot wires at different overheat ratios, operated in a channel with a choked exit. Thus, the constant Mach number by the wires is influenced only by free-stream total temperature and pressure. The probe was used in three separate experiments. The experiments include measurements of the flowfield at the exit of transonic fans during steady-state operation, measurements of turbulence intensity in the wake of a transonic turbine cascade, and measurements of the exit flowfield in a transonic core- compressor during rotating stall. The paper describes the performance of the probe in all three experiments. Brief descriptions of the experiments are given and exemplary data are presented.
