In a paper presented at the 1984 Annual CTI Meeting, the author reviewed the Merkel theory approximations and suggested simple methods to eliminate them in order to reduce the influence of temperature on the demand curve. He indicated that a second influence existed on the fill characteristic curve side. This paper addresses this question in detail and compares theory with actual test results, answering many of the questions left open by the first paper.
