There are wide-ranging opportunities to optimize the tangential velocity -which would impact the magnitude of the body force that inhibits mixing - by revising the geometry, and fuel injection strategy to avoid the very rich zone in the center; however, this is beyond the scope of the current work.
Buoyancy and drag forces are acting upward and resisting against body force acting downwards resulting from gravitational attraction Hiemenz and Dekker [1].
relatively broader female hips permit greater lower body force outputs), the men had higher force outputs with the squat than the women (8).
From 75[degrees] to 285[degrees] crank angle, the downward body force obviously drives oil on the piston third land to the bottom.
As a result, coaches can monitor things like maximal and average speed, total distance, sprint details, body force, heart rate and intensity during games and practices, and then plan accordingly - even comparing it against data from a previous season or training session.
L] is the linear stiffness matrix, and f is the body force.
The bottom boundaries of the breast tissue were fixed in all directions by a sternum (rib cage) to prevent any bulk motion from the local body force excitation for shear wave generation.

Receiving input from the force plates and cameras, Equilibrate senses minute shifts in central body force, positions, directions and frequencies of motion from individual areas of the body and provides quantitative scores of dynamic alignment and sway, as well as the integration of combined effects across the whole body in an overall score for total balance.
