Mechanisms of Vortex Oscillation in a Fluidic Flow Meter

By: Mohammed Al-Muqbel and Peshala Gamage | Mentor: Dr. Hansen Mansy

width= Flow meters are devices capable of measuring the amount of fluid transported through piping networks. Example applications include accurate measurements of flow in chemical processing plants and fluid consumption by end-users (e.g. water, fuel, natural gas, etc.) by customers, which is a core issue in fluid-handling engineering. Some flow meters contain no moving parts (Royle and Boucher 1972), which is desirable since moving parts wear over time, leading to compromised meter accuracy. Read more
