Re: 2nd edition
The LFE chapter, wrtten by David Todd, North Island Naval Air Station, provided information that led to a 0.5% of reading reduction in the measurement uncetainty of our Meriam LFE
-based combustion air flow measurement systems.
The CFV chapter, written by Walt Seidl, Colorado Engineering, helped us to tweak the performance of our 10 CFV binary array to an estimated uncertainty of +/-0.32% of reading over a flow range of 2.5 to 12,000 lbm/hr..
The turbine flow meter chapter, written by the late Paul Olivier, Flow Dynamics, helped us improve the calibration and operation of gas-type meters. Through the use of Strouhal and Roshco numbers we are able to make the calibration independent of the calibration conditions.
The Laboratory Primary standards chapter, written by Dr.John Wright, N.I.S.T., is a wealth of information we are using to refine the divertor in a small, liquid gravimetric flow standard.
Well worth the money!
