A comparative estimate of two indirect methods of measuring the difference in the flow rates of a heat carrier

  • V. P. Chipulis

Analytical estimates of the error for the standard and differential methods for indirect measurements of the difference in the flow rates of a heat carrier are presented. The areas in which the use of each of the methods is preferable are limited.
