    Lacking the accurate porosimeter, an economic method is established as plan B

    Hello!

    While I am doing my project, some equipment for accurate measurement has not reached on time, so I use some rough method to do the job, and that works very well.

    Now I want to show it in my resume, does that seems to be nature to express it like "Lacking the accurate porosimeter, an economic method is established as plan B" ?


    Thank you.

    It's not "an economic method." It might be "more economical," but I don't think that is the point you really want to make.

    "Lacking an accurate porosimeter, alternate means of estimating the measurement were developed."

    That sounds really better than my original one

    However, the economical is also a point I want to make, so with your advise, I write it like this:
    "Lacking an accurate porosimeter, more economical alternate means of estimating the porosity were developed."

    Could you help me with the new one?

    Thank you!

    That is OK.
