This thesis describes a novel methodology for slurry flow measurement using Coriolis flowmeters incorporating error compensation and structural condition monitoring techniques. This work investigates the influence of entrained solid particles on Coriolis flow metering along with the potential wear problem of Coriolis flowmeters handling such abrasive medium. A review of slurry flow measurement techniques is given, together with the associated technical issues in slurry flow metering using Coriolis flowmeters. The negative impact of the presence of solid particles on Coriolis flow metering is identified through experimental work. A semi-empirical analytical model is proposed to compensate the effect of solid particles on Coriolis flow metering. An in-situ condition monitoring technique is presented for examining the structural health of Coriolis measuring tubes.
