Abstract : The composite boundary layer mouse is an alternative method to the boundary layer velocity profile technique of determining all the pertinent parameters of a turbulent boundary layer. The accuracy of the system in comparison with the profile method was well within experimental tolerances usual with the measurement of boundary layer velocity profiles. The use of the composite system simplified the data reduction which could be performed by any computer, reduced the data reduction time, and thereby appreciably speeded up the entire boundary layer research program.
