Title

Design and laser evaluation of a pulsatile flow standard

Abstract

In a laboratory, there is a need to calibrate a variety of flow and velocity instruments used for hydrodynamic testing. Many other laboratories, including clinical ultrasound and laser Doppler velocimetry facilities, could utilize a device that would increase reliability in their flow measurements. A program to design a pulsatile flow system that is portable, easy to use, precise, accurate, reliable, and stable over time is presented. The device is optically clear to be utilized with laser systems, and needs ports that allow straight-on measurements. The keys in developing the system include a knowledge of kinematic viscosity of the fluid that will be used, and control over the geometry and compliance of the system.
