11. Acoustic Gas Thermometry
Published: 1/16/2014
Authors: Michael R Moldover, Roberto M Gavioso, James B Mehl, Laurent Pitre, Michael de Podesta, Jintao Zhang
Abstract: Primary acoustic gas thermometry (AGT) exploits the simple relationship between the speed of sound in a dilute gas u and the thermodynamic temperature T of the gas. For monatomic gases such as argon and helium, u2 = (5/3) kT/m, in the limit of zero f ...

12. Viscosity-ratio measurements with capillary viscometers
Published: 11/27/2013
Authors: Robert F Berg, Eric F. May, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: Viscosity-ratio measurements made with capillary viscometers exploit the accurate values of the viscosity of helium calculated ab initio. Accurate values of the argon-to-helium viscosity ratio are now used for primary acoustic gas thermometry and for ...

Published: 9/24/2013
Authors: Iosif I Shinder, Christopher J. Crowley, Bernard J Filla, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: We discuss five significant improvements to the Air Speed Calibration Service conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST): 1. Reduced-uncertainty calibrations of the secondary standard [Laser Doppler Anemometer, (LDA)] us ...

14. Improved Determination of the Boltzmann Constant using a Single, Fixed-Length Cylindrical Cavity
Published: 8/27/2013
Authors: Hong Lin, Keith A Gillis, XiaoJuan Feng, Michael R Moldover, J.P. Sun, J.T. Zhang, Y.Y. Duan
Abstract: We report improvements to our previous [Zhang et al., Intl. J. Thermophysics, 32, 1297 (2011)] determination of the Boltzmann constant kB using a single 80 mm-long cylindrical cavity. In this work, the shape of the gas-filled resonant cavity is clos ...

15. Calibration of a Long-Wavelength Acoustic Flowmeter Using a Lumped Impedance Acoustic Model
Published: 8/26/2013
Authors: Lee James Gorny, Keith A Gillis, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: As a part of NIST‰s program to standardize measurements of greenhouse gas emissions, we are developing long-wavelength acoustic flowmeter (LWAF) for accurate, economical measurement of flue gas flows, for example, from coal-burning power plants. A L ...

16. The Effect of Turbulence on a Multi-Hole Pitot Calibration
Published: 6/10/2013
Authors: Christopher J. Crowley, Iosif I Shinder, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: Abstract- Accurate calibrations of multi-hole Pitot tubes require thousands of measurements spanning ranges of the fluid‰s velocity, and the pitch and yaw angles. When calibrating a commercially-manufactured multi-hole Pitot tube in NIST‰s low-turbul ...

17. Microwave measurements for gas thermometry up to the copper point
Published: 5/13/2013
Authors: XiaoJuan Feng, Keith A Gillis, Michael R Moldover, James B Mehl
Abstract: We measured 5 microwave resonance frequencies {I}f{/I}^dN^ of an argon-filled cylindrical cavity at temperatures up to 1349 K. The repeatability of both the measured frequencies {I}u{/I}({I}f{/I}^dN^) and the scaled half-widths {I}u{/I}({I}g{/I}^dN^ ...

18. Recommended viscosities of 11 dilute gases at 25¿°C
Published: 12/13/2012
Authors: Robert F Berg, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: Commercially manufactured meters that measure the flow of a process gas are often calibrated with a known flow of a surrogate gas. This requires an accurate model of the flow meter and accurate values of the relevant thermophysical properties for bo ...

19. Room Temperature Acoustic Transducers for High-Temperature Thermometry
Published: 7/9/2012
Authors: Dean C Ripple, William E. Murdock, Gregory F Strouse, Keith A Gillis, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: We have successfully conducted highly-accurate, primary acoustic thermometry at 600 K using a sound source and a sound detector at room temperature. We describe the source, the detector, and the ducts that connected them to our cavity resonator. Thi ...

Published: 6/22/2012
Authors: Lee James Gorny, Keith A Gillis, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: As a part of NIST‰s program to standardize measurements of greenhouse gas emissions, we are developing a long-wavelength acoustic flowmeter (LWAF) for accurate, economical measurements of exhaust flows from coal-burning power plants. Measurements of ...
