Abstract

The uncertainty in the calculated Thermal Boundary Layer Correction (TBLC) / Bulk dissipation correction due to the uncertainty in the input parameters is calculated for the one litre spheres NPL1 / NPL2 filled with argon gas at T = 273.16 K. For typical measurement uncertainties, we find that the combined fractional uncertainty is a maximum at the lowest measurement pressure (50 kPa) and varies from:

0.24 PPM to 0.09 PPM for dF/F moving from the (0,2) to (0,10) mode.
0.24 PPM to 0.14 PPM for G/F moving from the (0,2) to (0,10) mode.

At P = 100 kPa, both uncertainties are less than 0.17 PPM.
