The theory and design of a real-time ultrasound time-domain correlation (UTDC) flowmeter employing a high-speed residue number system correlator has been presented in Part I  of this work. Part II evaluates the performance of the flowmeter under various flow conditions for different correlation parameter settings. Previous work has incorporated a weighted-averaging scheme to estimate the flow velocity over a wide number of echo signal spacings. This research indicates that a linear averaging of 50 adjacent echo signal pairs produces equivalent accuracy and precision at real-time processing speed as compared to previous non-real time systems incorporating weighted averaging.
