This paper presents the design of a system to measure discharge coefficients through complex geometry and conical orifices. Gas dynamic theory as it relates to this project is discussed. Orifice mass flow rate calculations and main flow channel mass flow rate characteristics are presented. Seventeen design concepts are illustrated and discussed. Design concepts are rated based upon weighted criteria. The concepts that best suit the design concepts are rated based upon weighted criteria. The concepts that best suit the design criteria are reevaluated. The best attributes of each concept are then combined to form the final design. The complete description of the final design as well as photographs of the assembled system is presented along with the assembly procedures. A stress analysis is performed to ensure the safety of the design. A testing procedure and laboratory data log sheet is presented. A complete list of metal costs and CAD sketches are included.
