The objective of this paper is to review the techniques employed for the measurement of flow in turbomachinery rotors. Only nonoptical techniques are included. Measurement of the following properties are covered: three-dimensional mean velocity, turbulence intensity and Reynolds stresses, static and stagnation pressures, and blade surface measurement. Both the conventional as well as the hot-wire/film techniques, including both the rotating- and the stationary-probe measurements, are reviewed. A brief description of various rotating-probe traverse mechanisms and rotor flow data transmission systems in use is also included.
