A survey of flow measurement techniques was carried out to assess the potential of a flowmeter using fiber optic sensing technology. The coriolis mass flow sensing technique was identified as being the most promising, and an optically-powered experimental version employing fiber optic sensors was constructed and tested. The experimental flowmeter exhibited encouraging performance and further development, by a manufacturer experienced in Coriolis flowmeter design,is recommended.
