AGA Repot No 10 : Speed Of Sound in Natural Gases


The speed of sound in natural gas is the velocity a sound wave travels in the gas.

An ultrasonic meter uses transducers to create sound pulses that travel across the flowing gas stream both with the flow and against the flow of gas.

The difference in the transit times can be used to calculate the velocity of the gas in the pipe.

The speed of sound in the gas can be calculated by dividing the distance between the transducer faces, known as path length, by the time required for a pulse to travel that distance.

The path lengths are measured very accurately in the manufacture of the meter.

In order for one to check the accuracy of the speed of sound measured by the ultrasonic meter, it was necessary to have an accurate method to calculate the speed of sound in natural gas.

AGA Report No. 10 was developed to do just that.

by comparing the speed of sound determined by the meter to the theoretical speed of sound in the gas as calculated by AGA Report No. 10.

The equations that are Used In AGA 10 are extremely difficult to solve without the use of a computer
