  • Patent number: 4978863
    Abstract: Flow rates of multi-phase streams may be determined by use of a fiber optic probe which establishes an illuminated sensing zone of finite dimensions. The probe collects light backscattered from the zone, the collected light being converted by a photodiode to voltage waveforms. Flow rate is determined by sampling voltage waveforms at discrete points in time, the sample being digitized and the digits being autocorrelated for such discrete points.
