The flowmeter operates on the principle that the rotation the fuel by the constant-speed inlet impeller tends to rotate the stationary outlet turbine in an amount which is proportional to the rate of fluid flow through the device measured in pounds per hour.
Flow sensor is a device for sensing the rate of fluid flow and is mainly used for industrial automation applications.
Since fluids have lack ability to resist deformation, the understanding of shear strain rate of fluid flow behavior is obviously needed.
Flow control deals with the rate of energy transfer which, in turn, is related to the rate of fluid flow.
Degraded material typically accumulates at dead zones, where the rate of fluid flow is reduced or static.
