It provides information on American crusing frigate's which extra particular books omit. it really is an outstanding advent to the us military of the battle of 1812. For British readers it's a well timed reminder that HMS Shannon used to be now not the one profitable Royal military Frigate of the warfare of 1812.

44. VARIABLE AREA FLOW METERS Fig. 45(a) shows one type known as a Rotameter. Here the float rises and falls in proportion to the rate of fluid flow through the tapered tube, thus adjusting the annular area between the float and the tube wall. Equilibrium is achieved when the downward gravitational force on the float is balanced by the upward force 31 FLOW M E A S U R I N G η DEVICES π — — Fig. 4 4 Seal Pots 1 i ] Ι I Fig. 45(b) Variable Area Meter (Ported Type) 2 VERTICAL.

41, has the advantage of requiring a shorter length of straight pipe upstream to give smoother entry than the orifice plate. It is less susceptible to errosion and will permit accurate measurement of approximately two-thirds more fluid at the same differential head than the thin plate orifice, and this is one of the main reasons for its choice. It also has a slightly improved pressure recovery and a discharge coefficient of 0-99. Fig. 42 Vcnturi ^ Fig. 41 Flow Nozzle The venturi is not commonly used as it is more expensive than the flow nozzle and the latter does the same work with sufficient accuracy.
