Remembering the sacrifice of those who lost their lives during the landings is vital, said Mr Froude.
But Froude headed in his second goal of the game from Andy Mair's corner in the second half.

Leg length (L) was measured (m) from the anterior superior iliac spine to the medial malleolus in order to derive Froude number (Fr) (Fr = [v.sup.2]/gxL: v = velocity, g = acceleration due to gravity, L =leg length) for each individual at each speed.
Froude scored again before Lewis Todd pulled one back.
where [d.sub.s] is the scour depth; b is the width (diameter) of bridge pier; [K.sub.s] is the shape factor; [K.sub.[theta]] is the pier alignment factor; [d.sub.50] is the median sediment size; [y.sub.1] and [V.sub.1] are approach depth and velocity, respectively; [V.sub.c] is the velocity for initiation of motion of sediment; F[r.sub.1] is the approach Froude number ([V.sub.1]/[square root of (g[y.sub.1])]); F[r.sub.b] is the approach pier Froude number ([V.sub.1]/[square root of (gb)]); [R.sub.1] is the approach Reynolds number ([V.sub.1][y.sub.1]/v), and [R.sub.b] is the pier Reynolds number ([V.sub.1][b.sub.1]/v).
The results also showed the influence of downstream Froude number for trapezoidal side weir and upstream Froude number for rectangular side weir in prediction of the discharge coefficient for both of side weirs.
Iranmanesh and Passandideh Fard numerically investigated water entry of a horizontal circular cylinder for low Froude numbers by the combination of the fast-fictitious-domain method and the volume-of-fluid (VOF) technique [14].
The Froude number modeling is often used as the scaling technique in fire situations where the Reynolds number is sufficiently large, turbulent conditions prevail, and buoyancy forces are dominant.
[21] developed an asymmetric lattice Boltzmann model for one-dimensional flow flows which can simulate flows with Froude numbers larger than 1.
The contract for the test bed went to Heenan and Froude. The outbreak of war meant the project had to be suspended.
