[′den·səd·ē ‚er·ər]
(aerospace engineering)
The error in the indications of a differential-pressure-type airspeed indicator due to nonstandard atmospheric density.

density error

The correction applied to equivalent air speed (EAS) to get true air speed (TAS).

ET = measurement error + volume conversion error + material density error. Worst case for the above example would be ET = 1% + 5.6% + 26% = 32.6%.
