The total volume of the particles in a granular material, including both permeable and impermeable voids but excluding spaces between particles.



Related Terms

WATER CUT (WC)

The water volume flow rate, relative to the total liquid volume flow rate (oil and water), both converted to volumes at standard pressure and temperature. The WC is normally expressed as a percentage.

GROSS REGISTERED TONNAGE

The total internal volume of the ship in units of 100 cu.ft.

V

total volume (gals).

MULTIPHASE FLOW RATE

The total amount of the two or three phases of a multiphase flow flowing through the cross-section of a conduit in unit time. The multiphase flow rate should be specified as multiphase volume flow rate or multiphase mass flow rate.

WATER-IN-LIQUID RATIO (WLR)

The water volume flow rate, relative to the total liquid volume flow rate (oil and water), at the pressure and temperature prevailing in that section.

GROSS REGISTERED TONS

A common measurement of the internal volume of a ship with certain spaces excluded. One ton equals 100 cubic feet; the total of all the enclosed spaces within a ship expressed in tons each of which is equivalent to 100 cubic feet.

ISO SOLID CONTAMINANT CODE (ISO 4406)

A code assigned on the basis of the number of particles per unit volume greater than 5 and 15 micrometers in size. Range numbers identify each increment in the particle population throughout the spectrum of levels.

POROSITY

The ratio of pore volume to total volume of a filter medium expressed as a percent.

GAS-LIQUID-RATIO (GLR)

The gas volume flow rate, relative to the total liquid volume flow rate (oil and water), all volumes converted to volumes at standard pressure and temperature.

BELLOWS GAS METER

A device for measuring the total volume of a continuous gas flow stream in which the motion of two bellows, alternately filled with and exhausted of the gas, actuates a register.
