Abstract [en]

When an ultrasonic flow meter system using the transit time technique is subjected to an increasing ambient or fluid temperature, the material in the meter will expand due to thermal expansion. This will affect the measurements due to a mismatch between the calibrated lengths in the meter system and the true lengths that varies with temperature. This paper incorporates a simple idea to reduce this problem. By the insertion of a compensation body behind the transducers the thermal expansion of this body will work to compensate for the errors due to the expansion in the materials that the flow meter is made of. Simulations have been performed to verify the idea and they show on a high level of compensation for the mentioned errors. Theinfluences from thermal expansions can theoretically be reduced to a negligible level.
