Lab 11 Unsteady Speed in a Karman Vortex Street Nomenclature – U = air speed (instead of V) – V CTA = Constant temperature anemometer voltage Two steps – Statically calibrate hot film CTA using a Pitot probe – Find frequency, f P with largest U RMS downstream from a cylinder of diameter D for a range of air speeds U Compare to expectations (St D = Df P /U = 0.2-0.21)

Hot Film System Calibration The fit equation V CTA 2 = aU 1/2 +b appears to be appropriate for these data. Using least squares the best values for the dimensional parameters are – a = 2.643 volts 2 s 1/2 /m 1/2 – b = 4.5742 volts 2

Unsteady Speed Downstream from a Cylinder Enter values of a and b in VI For each measurement use f S ~ 48,000 Hz, sampling time t T ~ 1 sec For each blower speed – Remove cylinder to measure average speed approaching cylinder U A – Return cylinder and measure unsteady speed Determine frequency f P with highest U RMS – Eyeball – Uncertainty in f P is larger of » Frequency resolution: ½(1/t T ) ~ 1/2 Hz, or » Eyeball range Repeat for ~5 different blower speeds UAUA Hot Film
