Flow Measurement Handbook: Industrial Designs, Operating Principles, Performance, and Applications. Roger C. Baker. Cambridge University Press, 40 W. 20th St., New York, NY 10011-4211. 2000. 524 pp. ISBN 0-521– 48010-8. $110.
A brief review of fluid mechanics principles, how to select a flowmeter, and a variety of calibration methods is followed by chapters devoted to classes of flowmeters with detailed information on design, applications, installation, calibration, operation, and advantages and disadvantages. Chapters cover orifice plate meters, venturi meter and standard nozzles, critical flow venturi nozzles, positive displacement flowmeters, turbine and related flowmeters, vortex shedding and fluidic flowmeters, electromagnetic flowmeters, ultrasonic flowmeters, thermal flowmeters, and coriolis flowmeters, as well as mass flow measurements using multiple sensors, angular momentum devices, probes, and modem control systems.
