An explicit non-real time method of reducing triple sensor hot-wire anenometer data to obtain the three mean velocity components and six Reynolds stresses, as well as their turbulence spectra in three-dimensional flow is proposed. Equations which relate explicitly the mean velocity components and Reynolds stresses in laboratory coordinates to the mean and mean square sensors output voltages in three stages are derived. The method was verified satisfactorily by comparison with single sensor hot-wire anemometer measurements in a zero pressure gradient incompressible turbulent boundary layer flow. It is simple and requires much lesser computation time when compared to other implicit non-real time method.
