Abstract : In order to measure the temperature and velocity of a high speed stream of a gas such as air, a temperature sensor is placed on the peripheral area of a disc wheel and the disc is positioned in the path of air flow and is spun until its periphery is traveling at the velocity of the air. The sensor, which is described in the patent, when moving downstream, has zero velocity with respect to the fast-flowing air and therefore gives a true reading of the air temperature.
