Flow Measurement Technologies

Flow Measurement Technologies is a research group within the Centre for Fluid and Complex Systems

Focus of our research

Led by Professor Manus Henry, our Flow Measurement Technologies research group specialises in the development of advanced flow measurement techniques, and in validating the measurement outputs.

With the development of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), many more sensors are being deployed in diverse environments from manufacturing to energy distribution systems. Our research develops technology to provide low cost, accurate and validated measurement systems to support the efficient operation of IIoT systems.

Our current partners include the University of Oxford, South Ural State University, Russia, and the UK’s National Engineering Laboratory (TÜV SÜD). 

Our aim

  • Develop state of the art flow metering instrumentation, from first concept through to commercial exploitation, working with a range of flow meter manufacturers, standards laboratories, and users;
  • Develop state of the art fault detection and measurement validation techniques, to provide verification of the measurement values obtained, particularly through the generation of dynamic metrological uncertainty estimates;
  • Develop state of the art demonstrators to showcase how advanced flow measurement and validation technologies can provide efficient solutions to meet current application challenges.
