FLOW MEASUREMENTS WITH RADIOISOTOPES

METHODS OF MEASURING FLOW WITH RADIOISOTOPES ARE REVIEWED. NONRADIOACTIVE FLOWMETERS ARE REVIEWED IN AN INTRODUCTORY SECTION TO PUT THE METHODS OF USING ISOTOPES IN THE PROPER PERSPECTIVE. THE ADVANTAGES, DISADVANTAGES, AND RELATIVE COSTS OF VARIOUS METHODS ARE COMPARED. RADIOISOTOPES MAY BE USED TO MEASURE FLOWS OF LIQUIDS OR GASES IN A VARIETY OF WAYS: AS TRACERS, TO IONIZE A GAS AND THEN MEASURE THE FLOW RATE OF THE IONS; OR TO INDICATE THE MOVEMENT OF THE FLOWING MATERIAL. THE PRECISION AND ACCURACY OF FLOW MEASUREMENTS USING RADIOISOTOPE TRACERS ARE ALSO DISCUSSED. /AUTHOR/
