Technical publications on the measurement of pulsating flow are reviewed. Fundamental aspects of the subject are stressed, and applications of pressure-differential meters are emphasized because of their importance to industry. Problems related to these meters are classified into those concerned with flow through the meter test section, the effect of the flow system on the meter, and the transmission of the signal from meter to recorder. Operation and application to pulsating flow of other meters such as the turbine type and electromagnetic flowmeter, the hot-wire anemometer, and the so-called “true mass-rate flowmeter” also are outlined. A summary of information available in codes and manuals is included.
