Description

Calculates the ambient air temperature

Usage

1
AirTemperature(RT, P, Q, E = 0, probe = "HARCO")

Arguments

RT

A numeric representing the recovery temperature in deg. C

P

A numeric representing the ambient pressure in hPa

Q

A numeric representing the dynamic pressure in hPa

E

An optional numeric representing the water vapor pressure in hPa

probe

An identifier for type of temperature probe. Default is 'HARCO'. Other options are 'ROSE' for heated Rosemount 102, 'HARCOB' for element-B of HARCO, and 'UNHEATED' for unheated Rosemount 102AL.

Details

Finds the air temperature from measurements of recovery temperature and ambient and dynamic pressure, with optional correction for humidity

Value

The ambient air temperature in deg.C
