Abstract
In order to solve the difficulties of the measurement of one-dimensional and bi-direction flow by a hot-wire probe, a test method and the model experiment are presented in this paper. Based on the exiting hot-wire sensor, another same sensor is added. The two sensors are installed in parallel whose distance is 6 times their diameters, and they are separately connected to the controller. If the flow goes around two circular cylinders in tandem with the low Reynolds number, an obvious velocity drop between free-stream and gap flow can be found. Consequently, the velocity detected by the upstream sensor is higher than that by the downstream one. Because the relatively fixed position of the pair of sensors has been determined beforehand, the direction of the one-dimensional flow can be deduced from the plus and minus of velocity drop detected by the two sensors.
