This paper discusses the application of multi-wire probes and the utilization of higher order moments in fluid dynamic probes. Multiprobe techniques are considered for conventional hot-wire probes and special probes are presented for flow structure detection. The use of higher order moments is related to the statistical description of turbulence.
