Data acquisition software was written to recover the ability to make loss measurements using a five-hole pneumatic probe in a wind tunnel facility currently containing a modeled subsonic cascade of controlled diffusion (CD) stator blades. Acquisition, reduction and ancillary programs were written for a Hewlett-Packard 9000 Series 300 computer/HP3052 Data Acquisition System in HP BASIC 5.0/ The new software was demonstrated and validated by conducting a set of surveys at the (near to stall) air inlet flow angle of 48 degrees. The survey results showed a diminishing core of two-dimensional flow through the blading due to side wall boundary layer effects, and integration of upstream and downstream measurements gave an axial velocity-density ratio of 1.108 and a NASA loss coefficient of 0.097. Prior to the surveys, the probe was calibrated in a free jet facility, thus also revalidating the calibration software. It was concluded that the facility instrumentation and procedures were now in place for making accurate off-design loss measurements on a routine basis.
