The influence of upstream pipe roughness on the performance of multipath ultrasonic flow meters was examined through a cursory literature review and an examination of experimental test data supplied by the natural gas industry. The results of these efforts were used to develop a recommendation for additional testing whereby the results of that testing can be combined with these results and potentially be used to support changes in the practices recommended by current industry standards.
