A primary standard piston prover for measurement of very small gas flows: an update

Giorgio Cignolo, Franco Alasia, Andrea Capelli, Roberto Goria, Gaetano La Piana

A prototype gas prover was constructed to serve as the Italian primary standard for gas flow rates in the range 0.1 ml/min to 2 l/min. The new prover is used to calibrate…

Reducing uncertainty in low flows for bench‐top wind tunnels

J.E. Hardy, T.E. McKnight

Bench‐top wind tunnels are used extensively by the US Air Force for calibrating anemometers. As anemometers have improved, the need for reduced uncertainties in the…
