Abstract : A flueric RC oscillator that is capable of operating over a wide range of stagnation conditions is described. This oscillator, developed primarily by experimental methods, demonstrates the feasibility of using flueric oscillators as time bases. To optimize pressure and temperature insensitivity, three geometrically similar oscillators with different resistors in the feedback network were constructed and tested. A modification of one of these oscillators had a frequency change of less than plus or minus 1 percent for pressures ranging from 6 to 30 psig and temperatures from -56 to 175F. (Author)
