A new calibration equation for vertical axis current meters / by Peter Engel. : En13-5/89-131E-PDF

"A new calibration equation for the Price current meter with rod suspension has been developed using physical principles and dimensional analysis. The physical parameters which govern the performance of the meter rotor have been revealed and combined into dimensionless coefficients. Excellent agreement between the equation and new calibration data obtained in the NWRI towing tank has been obtained over the range of velocities from 3 cm/s to 300 cm/s. Agreement with the data at velocities less than 40 cm/s was superior to methods presently being used"--Summary.
