Abstract
A novel spherically shaped thermal anemometer for low pressure, Mars-like conditions, is described. The concept has been designed using finite element multyphysics simulations to find out the thermal conductance to the ambient for varying conditions of wind speed and direction and ambient pressure and temperature. A prototype 1cm diameter suitable to work under these environment in the range 0.25-10m/s speed has been build using 3D printing and tested inside a low pressure chamber. The protopype...
