Vessel Flow Characteristics – Unit Conversions

The following document offers a unit conversion example for our FloAcq vessel flow characteristics software acquisition module.  Every value and unit with a blue background is manually entered. Input and output units are, in most cases, necessarily mismatched. Units need to be converted from the input units to intermediate units and from those intermediate units to the appropriate output units. Also, there are solution- and temperature-dependent values (density, viscosity) that enter into the equations. The most common scenario was chosen for this example, a solution with the density and viscosity of water at 37°C.
