1 January 1992 Optical fiber sensors for flow-rate measurements

In this paper we describe the operating principle of three different optical fiber flow meters. The optical fiber sensors used for sensing the measurand delivered by a conventional flow rate converter are all of the intrinsic type. Thus there is basically no influence in the measurement results due to fluid cleanness or fluid transparency. We present in the following some experimental results that we achieved in the case of water flowrates on industrial test rigs.
