INTRODUCTION Numerous devices are used in engineering practice to measure the flow of fluids. Velocity measurements are made with Pitot tubes, current meters, and rotating and hot-wire anemometers. In model studies, photographic methods are often used. Quantity measurements are accomplished by means of orifices, tubes, nozzles, Venturi meters and flumes, elbow meters, weirs, numerous modifications of the foregoing, and various patented meters. In order to apply the hydraulic devices intelligently, use of the Bernoulli equation and additional knowledge of the characteristics and…
