Abstract : An assessment has been made of the potential for hot wire and laser anemometer measurements of turbulent fluctuations in hypersonic flow fields. The results of experiments conducted in the AFWAL M=6 High Reynolds Number Wind Tunnel are reported and comparisons made with previous hot wire turbulence measurements.
