Flow Measurement Handbook is an information-packed reference for engineers on flow measuring techniques and instruments. Striking a balance between laboratory ideal and the realities of field experience, this handy tool provides a wealth of practical advice on the design, operation, and performance of a broad range of flowmeters. The book begins with a brief review of fluid mechanics principles, how to select a flowmeter, and a variety of calibration methods. Each of the following chapters is devoted to a class of flowmeters and includes detailed information on design, applications, installation, calibration, operation, and advantages and disadvantages. Among the flowmeters discussed are orifice plate meters, venturi meters and standard nozzles, critical flow venturi nozzles, positive displacement flowmeters, turbine and related flowmeters, vortex shedding and fluidic flowmeters, electromagnetic flowmeters, ultrasonic flowmeters, and coriolis flowmeters. Also covered are mass flow measurements using multiple sensors, thermal flowmeters, angular momentum devices, probes, and modern control systems. Many chapters conclude with an appendix on the theory behind the techniques discussed.

' ... a very useful handbook for engineers working in this area ... The style of the book is up to date. The book of about 470 pages is rich and clear illustrated ... an excellent handbook for all kinds of standard flow metering ... an information- packed reference.' M. Susser, Institute of Technical Physics
'The text is readable and clearly written ... the material would appeal to anyone working with flow meters in any capacity as well as to the fluid mechanician desiring to stay current in the area of flow meters. The effort put into this text by the author is enormous, and the text itself is outstanding. As such, Flow Measurement Handbook would make an excellent addition to any reference library.' Applied Mechanical Review
'Professor Roger Baker's Flow Measurement Handbook is an invaluable reference source for process engineers ... providing practical information on design, operation and performance across a broad range of flowmeters.' Talkline Magazine
'Of the many handbooks available this one on flow measurement covers aspects that the others omit. This book gives depth coverage of flow measurement ...'. Measurement + Control
'The subject area is very well researched while the experience of the author in this field adds weight to the comments and criticisms he makes ... In summary this is an extremely useful and detailed reference book for both academic and industrial scientists and engineers with an interest in flow measurement.' P. Angeli, Chem. Eng. Technol.
