Flow Analysis for Thermal Energy Measurement

Working Group 7.53


This working group deals with the investigation of conventional heat meters and flowmeters (e.g., ultrasonic clamp-on, ultrasonic, Coriolis, magneto-inductive flowmeters and others). The main focus of our work is to investigate the influence the flow profile has on the measurement error. For this purpose, we use laser-optical measurement procedures (such as particle image velocimetry and laser Doppler velocimetry) and numerical procedures (such as computational fluid dynamics).
