    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Gives a method for assessing in a closed conduit the volume rate of flow of a fluid of constant density or corresponding to a Mach number not exceeding 0.25; with substantially uniform stagnation temperature across the measuring cross section; running full in the conduit and under steady flow conditions. It deals with the technology and maintenance of Pitot static tubes, with the calculation of local velocities from measured differential pressures and with the computation of the flow rate by velocity integration.
