The concept of a multiple-venturi system is applied to the design of a flow-rate meter. This meter type has the capability of offering a high signal-to-loss ratio over a broad flow range. Its internal fluid mechanics are discussed with a view toward design optimization. Experimental results are reported and analyzed for a three-element meter.
