Computational and Experimental Studies on Capillary type Thermal Mass Flow Meters

With support of ISRO under the ISRO-IIT Space Technology Cell, our laboratory is developing a thermal flow meter. The meter has two primary elements (a) the heated capillary tube sensor and (b) the laminar shunt. I have worked on the design and construction of the mechanical and electronics components, I have predicted the response of the instrument a priori for given geometry of capillary tube and the laminar bypass. This has helped in finalizing the specifications for the first prototype, both mechanical and electronics. I have analyzed the temperature field inside the capillary, the flow field in the laminar bypass and experimentally studied the behaviour of capillary type flow meter under varying operating conditions.
