The design of ultrasonic gas flowmeters requires a thorough three dimensional characterization of the acoustic sound field. For large pipe flowmeters, such as used for flare gas metering, the transducers are operated at frequencies ranging from 20 kHz up to 150 kHz. Thus, in this work we use a commercially available calibrated 1/8-inch microphone, mounted on a 3D positioning system for performing volumetric measurements in a volume of up to 1×1×1 m. By using proper corrections in terms of… CONTINUE READING
