A technique based on a rotated hot wire has been developed to characterise the unsteady, three-dimensional flow field between compressor blade rows. Data are acquired from a slanted hot wire rotated through a number of orientations at each measurement point. Phase-averaged velocity statistics are obtained by solving a set of sensor response equations using a weighted, non-linear regression algorithm. The accuracy and robustness of the method were verified a priori by conducting a series of tests using synthetic data. The method is demonstrated by acquiring a full set of phase-averaged flow statistics in the wake of a compressor stator blade row. The technique allows three components of phase-averaged velocity, six components of phase-averaged deterministic stress, and six components of phase-averaged Reynolds stress to be recovered using a single rotated hot-wire probe.
