Use of Surface Fences to Measure Wall Shear Stress in Three-dimensional Boundary Layers

  • J D Vagt (a1) and H Fernholz (a1)

Summary

If surface fences are to be applied for measuring skin friction in three-dimensional boundary layers they must be calibrated for both magnitude and direction of the shear stress. Results of the calibration for fences of different height are given. Furthermore, a manufacturing process and a mounting procedure are described to obtain surface fences with identical calibration curves.
