Dynamic measurement challenges are ubiquitous in metrology and can be found in many measurement applications that are not conventionally regarded as dynamic. We present four recent examples of work at the UK's National Physical Laboratory that demonstrate how modelling and simulation can contribute to improved understanding of dynamic measurement tasks. The examples are (i) a software simulation of a lock-in amplifier, (ii) a simulation of a sensor network in which one of the sensors has insufficient bandwidth for the measurement task and Kalman filter based data fusion is used to aggregate the sensor outputs, (iii) a study of performance imperfections in a clock embedded in a wireless sensor node using a Monte Carlo based method for simulating counting errors, and (iv) a simulation of wave propagation in a shock tube in which the lattice Boltzmann method was used to study non-ideal behaviour of the shock tube. It is shown that simulation (both physically based and phenomenological) is useful in designing measuring systems and identifying and quantifying measurement uncertainties and that the development of simulation software requires the developer to have a clear understanding of the measuring system of interest.


The second part of the article describes the technology of marine engine diagnostics making use of dynamic measurements of the exhaust gas temperature. Little-known achievements of Prof. S. Rutkowski of the Naval College in Gdynia (now: Polish Naval Academy) in this area are presented. A novel approach is proposed which consists in the use of the measured exhaust gas temperature dynamics for qualitative and quantitative assessment of the enthalpy flux of successive pressure pulses of the exhaust gas supplying the marine engine turbocompressor. General design assumptions are presented for the measuring and diagnostic system which makes use of a sheathed thermocouple installed in the engine exhaust gas manifold. The corrected thermal inertia of the thermocouple enables to reproduce a real time-history of exhaust gas temperature changes.


Much research has gone into establishing the temperature gradients that exist inside a burning cigarette. These temperature gradients should correspond to changes in the density of the tobacco column due to the condensation and subsequent re-evaporation of volatiles resulting from pyrolysis, combustion, and final ash formation. These dynamic measurements on the burning cigarette were made using a modified beta thickness gauge. A beam of collimated beta particles from a 32P-source is projected through the side of a cigarette at a fixed position. The cigarette is allowed to burn past the focused beta beam. The number of transmitted particles is dependent upon the density of the mass penetrated by the incident particles, and is reflected as a change in the number of counts detected per unit time. A density profile of the burning cigarette has been established for both the puffing and static modes. These density changes are correlated with published temperature profiles. The buildup of the volatile materials (mostly water) on the tobacco rod behind the pyrolytic region is presented. The rate of evaporative losses of these condensables is shown to be dependent on puff count (cigarette length). A detailed density profile of the condensing materials from a single puff has been established. The relationships of these density changes to current smoke formation theories are discussed
