Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE MASS FLOW MEASUREMENT TECHNOLOGY BASED ON THE CORIOLIS PRINCIPLE FOR DIESEL ENGINE FUEL CONSUMPTION MEASUREMENT. MASS FLOW RATE MEASUREMENT OF FUELS BASED UPON THE CORIOLIS PRINCIPLE ARE SUPERIOR TO TRADITIONAL VOLUMETRIC TECHNOLOGIES BECAUSE A DIRECT NON-INVASIVE MEASURMENT OF MASS FLOW IS OBTAINED INDEPENDENT OF THE FUEL'S PHYSICAL OR CHEMICAL PROPERTIES. THE PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT WILL EVALUATE THE SUITABILITY OF A COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE CORIOLIS MASS FLOWMETER FOR ARMY VEHICLE FUEL CONSUMPTION MEASUREMENTS FROM THE STANDPOINT OF OPERATIONAL PERFORMANCE, ENVIRONMENTAL RUGGEDNESS AND EXPLOSION PROTECTION.
