    Abstract

    A Coriolis mass flow meter (CMFM) measures the rate of fluid flow from the effect of forces induced by the Coriolis effect on a vibrating tube. This work considers scaling a CMFM to measure small mass flow rates. The effect of the tube dimensions on the measured response, the pressure drop and the resonance frequency is analysed. It is shown that these properties cannot be tuned independently by scaling the tube's dimensions, posing a fundamental limit on the performance of a small flow CMFM.
