Abstract : The paper describes the techniques that have been applied to the study of turbulence in water, and the degree of progress and success of each. Hot-wire methods similar to those used in wind tunnels, dye diffusion, and oil-drop injection techniques have been tried. Of these, the most promising is the hot wire.
