The Concept of Local Euler Number as an Aid for Sizing Pitot Tubes

by José Roberto Bonilha, UNICAMP Universida de Campinas, Brazil,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering

Abstract:

Correlations with drag coefficients enable determining the relations between the form of Pitot tubes and their velocity coefficients. A numerical example is presented to clear the use of a methodology of analysis which can constitute a helpful tool for designing instruments or checking calibration results.
