Abstract

The design and test of the distribution manifold for a large-scale flowmeter calibration facility is presented. The design was intended to have an air-free flow operation and a free-surface flow-like towards the downstream half-body discharge. Back of the envelope calculations are presented for the estimation of the preliminary dimensions. Numerical simulations of the flow during manifold steady state operation are utilized to refine the manifold design. No air entrapment is noticed in the flow simulation.
