Document Type: Journal Paper


The Task Committee's charge relative to flow measurement included a review of techniques available, the encouragement of research in flow measurement, and the preparation of a final report. Two older published bibliographies concerning flow measurement are well known and generally available. The first, by Kolupaila covers the science and art of flow measurement from its historical beginnings to approximately 1960. The second, by Dowden begins with the year 1950 and covers contributions to approximately 1970. In 1970 during the tenure of the Task Committee, a symposium on hydrometry was held at Koblenz, Germany, under the auspices of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences. A 1975 paper published in the Transactions of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers is also referenced as a worthwhile evaluation of measurement methods. Hopefully, this bibliography will provide a ready reference for those engaged in utilizing and developing methods of hydrometry.
