Abstract

A relatively new method of measuring local velocity in a fluid stream has been devised which eliminates some of the inherent problems of the traditional methods. This method senses the Doppler shift of light scattered from a laser beam incident on particles suspended in the fluid. The Doppler shift is proportional to the particles (or fluid) velocity. This new technique has several distinct advantages over the more traditional methods of velocity measurement.
