Review of Airflow Measurement Techniques

2014-3-14  2 Air Velocity Measurements The most basic airflow measurement is the velocity and direction of the air flowing past a given point in space at a given time. Although it sounds simple, this has not been an easy thing to measure, particularly for small flows, because a measuring device placed in the airstream changes the airflow slightly.
