Sustainable advanced flow meter calibration for transport sector

    Project: EU project

    Project Details


    Improving engine efficiency and emissions measurements

    Reliable fuel consumption and emissions measurements are needed to achieve emissions reduction in the transport sector. Thus, advances also need to be made in flow metrology that is crucial in determining engine efficiency.

    Project develops harmonised flow measurement methods that consider alternative fuels and actual operational conditions for the assessment of fuel flow meters deployed in close-to-engine applications.

    VTT MIKES performs flow measurements with various liquids under various conditions using different flow meters and simulates the interaction between test liquid and flow meter
