P8.2 - Experimental and Numerical Investigation of New Bluff Body Design for Vortex Flow Meters

S. Tournillon, H. Krisch, A. Gedikli & E. Von Lavante
In the present investigation, the task of further improvement of accuracy of determination of volumetric flows by employing the so-called vortexshedding flow meter by using a novel design of the bluff body has been studied. Based on earlier investigation, in which the focus was on signal processing, it was decided by the present authors to study in more detail cylindrical bluff bodies with thread or with grooved surface, with ring-type ribs of various high and...
