Abstract : This report presents the results of a study of a pressure drop rig for measuring pressure drop across samples of foam. In addition, a test procedure and two evaluation programs are presented which reduce test data to standard day conditions so that the results are independent of the test ambient conditions. An analysis of instrument reading error effects is provided to determine their maximum cumulative effect on the assigned value of foam pressure drop.
