Book Description

This book is the first one presenting both the new elaborated method of the flow measurement , named by the author" the reaction force method of flow measurement", including its specific "reaction measurement system" which ensures its practical implementation, and the new basic types of flowmeters, configured according to it, named accordingly "reaction flowmeters". These achievements were the results of the first implementation, in last two years, of Method of Unitary Synthesis and Design of Flowmeters (European Patent EP the 18020055.2, granted on 2020).

Due to its universality and flexibility, "The reaction force method of flow measurement" keeps the same configuration of "the reaction measurement system" for the design of any new basic types of reaction flowmeters.

The book presents the reaction flowmeters by following the logical sequence of their structural (implicitly functioning) evolution, that rendered the logical systematic way followed for their configuration. There are detailed successively (main analytical, constructive and functional features) the individual (single) reaction flow meters, configured both without and with moving parts, respectively the specific connections of two reaction flowmeters , named "extended reaction flowmeters", and the bypass type reaction flowmeters. All of these flowmeters can be used for both liquids and gases.

The book is addressed to all specialists in the field of flow measurement and instrumentation, and especially to flowmeters manufacturers and R&D specialists, in addition to the teaching staff and students at such specialized, technical, and high- level universities.
