Analytical dependences of calculation of location coordinates and weight coefficients of acoustic paths of ultrasonic flowmeters.

Keywords: ultrasonic flowmeter, acoustic path, Gauss numerical integration method, Jacobi polynomial, approximation


On the basis of Gauss-Jacobi numerical integration methods developed analytical calculation depending on location coordinates and weighting coefficients acoustic paths of two-, three- and four-path chordal ultrasonic flow meters.
