This calculates the flowrate, applying corrections for the elastic distortion of the ultrasonic meter spool due pressure and thermal expansion.

- User Entered
Select based on whether flow velocity is an unknown.
- Profile-effect correction
Check box if profile-effect correction is needed. This should only be applied to Juniorsonic meters.
- Before spool correction
- After spool correction
This option is used to specify whether there is a linearization applied to the flow rate. If linearization is applied to the raw volume flow rate then select before spool correction, if it is done after correction factors have been applied select after spool correction. The calibration correction is carried out according to C244 – Calibration Correction.
Uncorrected volume flow rate
The uncorrected volume flow rate is calculated by:
Observed volume flow rate
The observed volume flow rate is calculated by:
|Ctsm||=||Temperature correction factor|
|Cpsm||=||Pressure correction factor|
Temperature correction factor
The temperature correction factor is calculated by:
Pressure correction factor
The pressure correction factor is calculated by:
|β||=||Strain per unit stress|
|ν||=||Poisson’s ratio (note this is set to 0.3)|
The profile-effect correction factor is for Juniorsonic meters and is calculated as follows:
|Sro||=||Spool wall roughness|
