This paper describes a precise method for extrapolating the coefficient of discharge of PTC 6 throat tap nozzles using all or most of the calibration data. The theoretical basis for this method is described in a parallel paper [3]. Numerical examples are given using actual calibration data to describe this method. Because this method permits the use of all calibration data at or above Reynolds numbers of 1,000,000, it is a clear improvement over the PTC 6-1976 method, which permits only the highest single point.
