One of the revisions was Reference Method 2H, which was designed to allow sources to adjust their flow data to account for wall-effects (i.e., the velocity drop-off at the stack wall due to viscous shear that the equal area traverse method does not address). Reference Method 2H allows utilities to perform tests to determine wall-effect adjustment factors and also incorporates default correction factors, albeit very conservative ones, that can be used without testing. Unfortunately, Method 2H can currently only be used on circular stacks. No wall-effect corrections are allowed for volumetric flow meters installed on rectangular ducts or stacks.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
