Caption: Wind tunnel sensor with a scale bar in centimetres. This is a Pitot probe (or Pitot tube), named after the French hydraulic engineer Henri Pitot (1695-1771). This is used to measure the velocity of a fluid flow. Air flows as a fluid, and this probe is part of a pressure rake for a small-scale wind tunnel. A pressure rake is an array of sensors used to measure the pressure distribution at different points within a wind tunnel. Photographed at NASA's Glenn Research Center (GRC), Ohio, USA. This GRC image dates from 18 July 2002.
