Today's most popular technology of ultrasonic flow measurement is based on the transit time principle. In this work, a numerical simulation technique applicable to the analysis and optimization of transit time flowmeters is presented. - - A flowmeter represents a large simulation problem which also requires computation of acoustic fields in moving media. For this purpose, a novel boundary integral method, the Helmholtz integral-ray tracing method (HIRM), is derived and validated. For simulation of practical acoustic devices, a hybrid simulation scheme consisting of the finite element method (FEM) and HIRM is proposed. It is demonstrated that the FEM-HIRM scheme enables an accurate and efficient simulation of a complete transit time flowmeter. - - In an industrial environment, the new simulation technique can be applied to accelerate the traditional experimental-based design of ultrasonic flowmeters.
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc. We are still the same company and the same people, only our corporate name has changed.
