WEBINAR: Enabling reliable fuel consumption measurements

Reliable fuel consumption measurements play an essential role in developments to increase engine efficiency and the transformation to e-fuels or emission determination. A verification of the performance of flow meters used for the fuel consumption measurements under real-world conditions compared to laboratory conditions is thus of great interest since often the measurement technology must be an order of magnitude better than the targeted improvements.


Aspects to be discussed in the webinar comprise

  • performance of flow meters under dynamic flow changes - development of metrological infrastructure and test regimes
  • effects of operation conditions (e.g. temperature, viscosity)
  • transfer of calibrations between different fluids
  • density and viscosity of alternative and synthetic fuels
  • advanced means to measure in-situ density and viscosity of fuels.
