Abstract : The patent relates to a combined, coaxial probe unit including a diffused diaphragm pressure tranducer sensor device positioned within a larger outer tube and mountable within a wind tunnel test model for measuring both inlet total head and static pressure. The sensor device is miniaturized and incorporates built-in protection against impact damage from contaminants in the stream flow by means of an integral baffle plate located in the tip of the probe unit immediately upstream from the sensor device.
