This paper presents a velocity profile measurement technique using a ultrasound time-domain correlation method (UTDC). The system is based on the cross correlation between two consecutive echoes of ultrasonic pulses to detect the velocity. The UTDC has two advantages over a conventional ultrasound pulse Doppler method. First, the system has a higher time resolution than the pulse Doppler method. Second, the system does not have a limitation in maximum measurable velocity, which is limited by Nyquist’s sampling theorem. In this paper, the velocity profile measurement in turbulent pipe flow using the UTDC is performed.
