Measurement of the Flow of Liquefied Gases with Sharp-Edged Orifices
The great increase in the use of liquefied gases by both government and industry has stimulated the very rapid growth of cryogenic engineering. As a result many engineers with no low temperature experience have suddenly been concerned with problems at very low temperature. There has been a tendency to assume that liquefied gases will not obey the physical principles governing the behavior of the more familiar fluids. This assumption is not tenable; as a matter of fact, there are good reasons why the behavior of liquefied gases is more readily predictable than more common liquids, such as water and petroleum products.
