The present work provides a detailed account of a pneumatic measuring technique appropriate for flow field measurements in turbomachinery configurations, making use of long-nose 5-hole probes. The way of obtaining flow quantities in a frame of reference on the sensing head of the probe is first addressed. Transformation of velocity co-ordinates from the probe frame to a stationary frame, customary for turbomachinery flows, is then discussed. Sources of error are also discussed, with particular attention on those that can be introduced by the nose geometry and the co-ordinate transformations. The potential of the measuring technique is demonstrated by presenting the application of the technique for measurements in an annular cascade facility. The results are compared to results obtained by a 3-D Laser-Doppler Anemometer.
