Steerable Air-Coupled Ultrasonic Technology for Flow Measurement and NDE Applications,
European Commission Ref. 612118
Accurate flow measurement has become increasingly important for many key industrial sectors including oil and gas, aerospace, automotive, chemical and pharmaceutical process industries, as well as various military and government operations. While ultrasonic flow measurement offer numerous advantages, there remain many challenges that need to be overcome while making ultrasonic flow measurement both accurate & reliable, especially
for applications in gas medium. In order to tackle these issues, complex yet cost effective flow measurement instrumentation development is fundamental.
Specifically, this SACUT project involves design, construction and testing of novel ultrasound measurement system for air-coupled ultrasonics, primarily for flow measurement but also for generic Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) applications. This will be achieved through effective knowledge transfer
and collaboration between the four principal partners; Prof. Steve Dixon (University of Warwick: Academic partner and program coordinator, based
in the UK), Dr. Nishal Ramadas (Elster NV/SA: Commercial partner, based in Belgium), an SME, (based in the UK) and
Prof. Mario Kupnik (TUDA - Technische Universität Darmstadt: Academic partner, based in Germany).
