An Experimental Procedure for Determining Both the Density and Flow Rate From Pressure Drop Measurements in a Cylindrical Pipe

Abstract : An experimental procedure was developed for determining both the density and flow rate of a gas from measurements of pressure drops caused by an abrupt flow area contraction in a cylindrical pipe. Experiments were carried out by varying the density and flow rate of a light gas mixture of air and helium, spanning a Reynolds number range from 0.2.10^4 to 3.4.10^4. From experimental results, a procedure was then proposed for evaluating the density from pressure change measurements in the scope of light gas extraction experiments.
