Unformatted text preview: orifice meter showed that the one used in experiment gives values similar to theoretical ones. The orfice meter coefficient is found as 0.44. It is well-matched with theoretical correction coefficient which is between 0.6 and 0.65.[Ref.5]. Furthermore, pitot tube correction factor is determined as 0.76 which shows that this pitot tube is a bit far from ideal case. Moreover, friction factors calculated depending on rough pipe are higher than theoretical ones. To conclude, depending on experimental analysis, the flow meters used in the experiment show deviations from ideality. i...
