This report describes the non-nulling calibration of a13; typical, two dimensional, combination wedge probe used in13; turbo machinery testing and analysis the calibration13; characteristics in detail. The calibration was carried out in a 0;lm x 0 . 2 5 m cross-section Induction Tunnel over a subsonic Mach number range of 0.1 i M lt;: 0.7 and a yaw angle range of -FA to +20 . Calibration data has been plotted in terms of non dimensional parameters composed of true total and static pressures and the pressures read by the probe orifices. A procedure, based upon the successive Iteration among the calibration curves, is described .for obtaining the t.rue flow 1x2019;. parameters from the measured probe pressures in an unknown flow field. x2019; BASIC x2019; language programmes and subroutines, which run on MACSYM 150 desk-top computer and a NPS-6 digital intelligent plotter are explained for.plotting the calibration parameters, polynomial curve fitting and for computing the true flow parameters.
