The forces on a body moving through a gaseous medium. In an aircraft, the thrust acts forward, drag acts rearward, and lift acts vertically upward. The weight of an aircraft produces a force that acts vertically downward. The tailplane also produces a net downward force that balances the weight around the center of gravity to provide longitudinal stability. The aerodynamic forces around a body moving through a gaseous medium are assumed to be proportional to the density of the medium (ρ), square of speed (V2), characteristics of the dimensions of the body (normally L2 or S2), and Reynolds number raised to power n (Rn). See also Reynolds number.

The components of the aerodynamic forces projected on the vehicle axis are the drag in the streamwise direction, the side force in the lateral direction, and the lift in the upward vertical direction.
The Propellers Blades bearings will be designed, manufactured and tested (component tests are required necessary to demonstrate the behaviour with different loads cases TRL 5 is required ) to withstand the radial load of the propeller blade load in operating condition due centrifugal forces and unbalance loads, to withstand axial and tangential loads due to aerodynamic forces on the blade and to withstand to the high temperatures.
The new state-of-the-art balance technology delivers unprecedented precision and repeatability for measuring aerodynamic forces on a vehicle.
It will continue to test the structural integrity for another two years to validate the effects of aerodynamic forces and weight distribution on different sections of the airframe.
Aerodynamic forces and the requirement to clear the crossbar were expected to have only a small influence on the player's optimum projection angle (Linthorne and Everett, 2006; Linthorne and Patel, 2011).
To get to grips with the aerodynamic forces generated by the snake's body, Jake Socha and his colleagues, Daniel Holden, Nicholas Cardwell and Pavlos Vlachos, used a 3D printer to produce a rod with the same UFO cross-section as the snake's body before placing it across a tank filled with water that flowed over the snake-shaped bar.
A top-mounted carbon fibre rear wing provides rear downforce and stability, while a carbon fibre splitter balances the aerodynamic forces at the front of the car.
04 release includes a new model to predict the formation and transport of a thin liquid film on a solid surface, and its subsequent stripping and break-up under aerodynamic forces.
4) In addition to a new CONOPS, electric propulsion, and a small platform, the third phase will demand a vehicle capable of manipulating aerodynamic forces (similar to the space shuttle and X-37).
As a result, at top speed, aerodynamic forces exert an additional 190kg pushing the 911 GT3 RS 4.
The data confirm that the fish control aerodynamic forces by altering the angle of their pectoral fins, which changes the effective "wingspan" and the lift force.
