This paper presents an improved method of calibrating hot-film X-probes in incompressible flow. The yaw response of a hot-film X-probe was investigated for different velocities and found to be strongly velocity dependent at low velocities. A simple relation was developed to correct for the variation of yaw response at low velocities. The method using the yaw correction is compared with the single-velocity yaw calibration method. The correction to the yaw response considerably improves accuracy at low velocities.
