Abstract The influence of eddy shedding on the instantaneous readings of a three-segment cylindrical electrodiffusion velocity probe was investigated in an immersed jet with a very low turbulence intensity, σ = 1.2%. The velocity fluctuations measured by the three-segment probe were smaller than 2.6%, and the maximum error in the flow angle estimation was 2∘. Vortices with the Strouhal frequency were detected by a simple electrodiffusion probe placed downstream of the three-segment probe, but no peaks with this frequency were found on the frequency spectra of the three-segment probe. From the probe response to a stepwise change of the polarization voltage the characteristic times of the transient process were estimated.
