Abstract

This document contains the relationships and Labview code used to calculate the thermo-viscous corrections to the resonance frequencies to terms in P2 for argon, and to terms in P for helium. It also includes:
The shell-coupling model of Mehl [1] for radial modes.
The improved shell-coupling model of Pitre [13].
The duct correction of Mehl [14].
The transducer correction.
The 2nd order shape correction for a tri-axial ellipsoid.
Correction to the triple point of water temperature.
Calculation of the speed of sound.
Least squares fitting procedures.
The location of the working Software suite and the back-up files is given in the Appendix.
