1
CRFS Study Force, Pressure, Flow & Volume

2
Force & Pressure Mechanical Strain Gauge Piezo-resistive Capacitive Inductive Optical

3
Mechanical Gauges Manometers Force summing devices

4
Strain Gauge Wire or foil which thins when stretched Resistance increases when stretched Usually used in pairs or groups of 4

5
Wheatstone Bridge Circuit Diaphragm flex stretches some & compresses others Increases sensitivity & linearity Full or half bridge

6
Piezo-resistive Semiconductor chip Resistance changes when flexed May include amplifiers

7
Capacitive Capacitance between diaphagm & 1 or 2 fixed plates Requires AC Limited by characteristics of gap contents

8
Inductive Inductance changes produced by metal diaphragm on 2 fixed coils Requires AC

9
Optical Light intensity varies with pressure

10
Pressure Absolute Gauge Differential

11
Flow Fleisch pneumotach Screen pneumotach Pitot tube Venturi / Orifice Rotating vane Mass Flow Ultrasonic Differentiation of volume

12
Reynold’s Number v s - mean fluid velocity, L - characteristic length (equal to diameter 2r if a cross- section is circular), μ - (absolute) dynamic fluid viscosity, ν - kinematic fluid viscosity: ν = μ / ρ, ρ - fluid density.
