The non-intrusive ultrasonic cross correlation flow meter CROSSFLOW, developed and

manufactured by Advanced Measurement and Analysis Group Inc. (AMAG) is installed in

nuclear reactors in Canada and around the world. AMAG and De Monfort University (UK) are

cooperating in an ongoing research project to develop a theoretical basis for cross correlation

flow measurement technology, with the goal of improving measurement accuracy. The project

involves theoretical development, laboratory testing, and computational flow simulations.

This paper describes the recent progress of this project.
