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
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.

As the ECM reduces the airflow of the fan, there is a corresponding decrease in the W/cfm.
On the other hand, a minimum airflow rate is generally required to ensure that the occupied space can evenly receive sufficient fresh, cool, and dry supply air to remove contaminants, heat, and moisture generated in the space.
Obsidian Series 750D Airflow Edition Specifications
From the energy modeling standpoint, there are at least two airflow-related workflows to consider: cosimulation, in which the energy and airflow engines cooperatively compute the solution to the combined heat and mass transfer problem, and serial simulation, in which the energy and airflow engines are used separately to solve the energy and airflow problems, and information transfer (e.
However, airflow is very useful to lessen humidity especially through creating draught around buildings [7].
Blades cannot be too long or too wide if you want to maximize ceiling fan airflow.
The length of the estimated area 1000 mm corresponds to the blade's length, thus the modeled airflow does not get through the blade's wings, and the calculation results should correspond the parameters of 1000 mm length blade in the real environment.
These new airflow sensors are designed to function in a wide range of applications.
The 3G Airflow system-Double D's third generation of airflow design for its Revob and Continuous Protein Oven-can achieve an average 100/0 improvement in cook times, and up to 42% on certain types of bacon.
Numerical solutions of airflow ventilation rates, and temperatures of room air and wall assemblies, are often treated separately.
All patients who had pre-bronchodilator criteria of airflow obstruction were analyzed and compared with the post bronchodilator criteria.
The integrated constant airflow regulator automatically balances the right airflow in the exhaust duct as per the design, and independently from system pressures due to the wind, the climate and the building s height (stack effect), to prevent any over or under ventilation.
