An inexpensive method for measurements of static pressure fluctuations

Dan Liberzon, Lev Shemer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An application of a commercially available and inexpensive pressure probe and transducer, originally designed for pressure drop measurements in air conditioning conduits, is suggested for accurate and reliable measurements of static pressure fluctuations in airflow, with a particular application to wind interaction with water waves. It is demonstrated that this static pressure probe is a robust instrument that offers efficient dynamic pressure elimination while having low directional sensitivity and sufficiently high dynamic response. A series of measurements in a wind-wave flume was carried out to validate the characteristics of the sensor and of the pressure transducer.
