    In this first of 4 articles about the early history of the National Bureau of Standards (NBS), which in 1988 became the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), I present an overview of the state of standards in America during the first decades of the country's existence, some of the origins of the scientific approach to metrology, and the growth of the NBS through the contributions of some of the outstanding people who participated in metrology.

    Tutorial 18, "Flow Meters: Part 1", covered the basic concepts of flow meters, explained the working principles of volumetric and mass flow meters, presented error compensation techniques, and included a brief explanation of smart flow meters. In the second part of this tutorial, I explain the primary working principles, advantages, and disadvantages of the following four types of inferential flow meters: differential pressure, variable area, target, and velocity flow. I present some experimental results from a linearization technique using a nonlinear A/D converter (ADC) to linearize a differential flow meter's square-root characteristic. View full abstract»

    We propose lightweight, problem-oriented computer-aided design (CAD) systems that can be used to design and test sensor prototypes. These systems are easy to develop and are faster, more precise, and demand less hardware. Since they can completely hide the numerical model, the user can learn to use the system quickly without a sophisticated math background. View full abstract»
