Title
(EN) ACOUSTIC RESONANCE FLUID FLOW MEASUREMENT DEVICE AND METHOD
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ DE MESURE DE DÉBIT DE FLUIDE À RÉSONANCE ACOUSTIQUE
Abstract
(EN) A method of operating an acoustic resonance fluid flow sensor. The method comprises emitting an acoustic stimulus signal comprising a plurality of frequencies into an acoustic resonance cavity of the acoustic resonance fluid flow sensor, sensing an acoustic response signal within the acoustic resonance cavity and deriving the phases or equivalent group delays of one or more frequency components of a frequency spectrum of the acoustic response signal.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de fonctionnement d'un capteur d'écoulement de fluide à résonance acoustique. Le procédé consiste à émettre un signal de stimulus acoustique comprenant une pluralité de fréquences dans une cavité de résonance acoustique du capteur d'écoulement de fluide à résonance acoustique, détecter un signal de réponse acoustique à l'intérieur de la cavité de résonance acoustique et dériver des phases ou des retards de groupe équivalents d'une ou de plusieurs composantes de fréquence d'un spectre de fréquence du signal de réponse acoustique.
