Metrology, the Science of Measurament: the Unique Thermal Fluid Dynamic MockUp

Metrology is the science of measurement and it includes all the theoretical and practical aspects of measurement as well as the design and realization of complex devices exploiting physical phenomena at the human knowledge boundaries to be used as extremely accurate standards. That is why time is measured with nuclear phenomena, length with light phenomena, force with gravity-based machines. Every country has one or more metrological institutes that collaborates with the other countries ones under the Metre Convention treaty. To validate our metering technology, it has been designed and realized the first worldwide thermal fluid dynamic mockup for heating exchange experimentation. To do something that the global heating allocation industry has always fear to do: detect the measurement accuracy in real working conditions, not in ideal ones as used for the heating cost allocator devices.

Primary Energy Consumption, Pollution and People Health: Obbligation of Heating Allocation as an European Community Policy

According to a 2004 survey from European Community, the residential sector weights as much as 1/4 on the global European primary energy consumptions and approximately the 75% of this is for residential spaces heating. This roughly means that the 18% of the European energy expenses and air pollution come from what we literally burn for our houses heating. According to several medical researches, air pollution in the major European cities kills more than twice with respect to car accidents. But this is not divulgated by media and perceived by citizens. Since there are great wastes in hour houses, the European Community promulgated a directive that obliges to install heating conversion systems as an opportunity for the tenants to save money, for Europe to be less politically dependent to oil and gas producer countries, for people to live in a more healthy environment. The European obbligation deadline is 31st december 2016.
