This revised edition retains the succinct style of the original, with plenty of clear line diagrams and shading to highlight key points, it is comprehensive and easy–to–use. The material is based on the author s own lectures at Cranfield Institute of Technology, UK, but incorporates lessons learned through using the first edition as a teaching tool during the 13 years since its first publication. It aims to transmit as much information as possible, as efficiently as possible, in as short a time as possible.
Essential reading for any engineer faced with a flow measurement problem this book will enable the reader to assess advice received from manufacturers and contribute to discussions with experts. Existing and new readers alike will welcome this updated version of the well established and highly regarded Introductory Guide to Flow Measurement. Key areas considered include,
- Accuracy; flow behavior, and fluid parameters
- Calibration techniques
- Momentum flowmeters
- Volumetric flowmeters
- Mass flowmeters
- Probes and tracers
- Recent developments and future trends
Professor Roger Baker has spent most of his professional life working in flow measurement and related areas of instrumentation and fluid engineering. Having held teaching posts at Cambridge University and Imperial College, he was Professor of Fluid Engineering at Cranfield for 12 years, setting up and running the Department of Fluid Engineering and Instrumentation. He has worked closely with industry in the UK and the USA. He has now returned to Cambridge and is working full–time there as a Visiting Industrial Fellow, while retainng his links with Cranfield through his Visiting Professorship there.
