airflow

[′er‚flō]
(fluid mechanics)
A flow or stream of air which may take lace in a wind tunnel or, as a relative airflow, past the wing or other parts of a moving craft. Also known as airstream.
A rate of flow, measured by mass or volume per unit of time.

airflow

airflow
A flow or stream of air. An airflow may take place in a wind tunnel, in the induction system of an engine, etc. It is relative airflow that goes past the wing or other parts of a moving craft. The rate of airflow is measured by mass or volume per unit of time.

Plugging into k8s enables Airflow to be operated and scheduled by k8s.
The main objective of this CFD study is to compare the performance of overhead supply with displacement ventilation system for a typical layout of a hospital patient room under identical cooling loads and evaluate the effect of supply airflow rates (ACH) on the performance of a displacement ventilation system.
"Study 2 was undertaken to better understand sources of airflow vibrato.
Nigel says, "Airflow does not compromise when designing and building its products, be it a spray booth, pre-treat/powder coat system or industrial oven, this is a major purchase for our clients and should give large returns on operational investment and remain reliable for many years."
[3] and Lyu [4] conducted a study on combined variable geometry control of an ACE during throttling based on matching mechanism, obtaining a proper control schedule to maintain the airflow during throttling and improve installed performance of the ACE.
Recent Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis of a legacy HVAC configuration for a hospital operating room with a ceiling array of laminar supply diffusers and low exhaust grills on the opposite walls indicated that increasing the supply airflow rate can significantly reduce the thermal gradients which in turn reduces relative acceleration of the centerline velocity of the air jet.
In this case the variable airflow ECM would consume 0.13 W/cfm (0.28 W/L-s), which is a 61% reduction compared to the 0.33 W/cfm (0.70 W/L-s) at full airflow.
The working principle, design, parameters effects studies, and airflow measurement experiments of the presented plasma anemometer will be illustrated in the following sections.
The regeneration air filter removes any airborne contaminants from the incoming air, protecting the dryer's desiccant from contamination, and must be serviced periodically to prevent contaminants from building up on the filter and reducing airflow.
In the pages of "Practical Engine Airflow: Performance Theory and Applications", Baechtel draws upon his experience and expertise to deftly explain airflow dynamics through an engine in layman's terms so even the most novice of mechanics and car buffs can easily absorb it and apply it.
Karnataka, June 3 -- Corsair(R), a world leader in high-performance PC hardware, today announced the Obsidian Series(R) 750D Airflow Edition full-tower PC case.
