dc.description.abstract An ultrasonic flowmeter is developed for use in natural gas mains. The characteristics of the application and the dynamic head device presently employed are described. The performance requirements, design, and prototype testing of the ultrasonic instrument are discussed. The viability of a unique metering technique using reflected acoustic pulses was experimentally demonstrated. The flowmeter developed herein requires access to one side of the gas line and is self calibrating. It was concluded that continued development will produce a unit suitable for use in commercial service. en_US
