In the field of advanced heavy-liquid-metal (HLM) cooled systems the knowledge of flow properties of the liquid metal is important for the design, the operation and the safety of such systems. The measurement of the flow properties is usually hampered by the high temperature and the opaqueness of liquid melts. We will give an overview of the recent developments of measurement techniques which can be used for model experiments as wells as for instrumenting a HLM cooled system. This includes ultrasound Doppler velocimetry, x-ray radioscopy and several inductive techniques like inductive flow meters and the contacless inductive flow tomography.
