Kiel Probe

The misalignment error of a pitot tube is greatly reduced if the probe is shielded, as in the Kiel-type probe. The Kiel probe is accurate up to α ≈ 45°.

Kiel Probe is described in multiple online sources, as addition to our editors' articles, see section below for printable documents, Kiel Probe books and related discussion.

The degree of error is determined by the nose shape of the probe. Cylinder type probes possess very little tolerance to misalignment.
