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.

PSC motors are only used in those applications where the airflow from the FPTU fan is expected to be constant.
Since the air is supplied at relatively low velocities (25 to 35 fpm, 0.13 to 0.18 m/s) and only through a part of the ceiling, the unidirectional flow can be maintained mostly in the core of the air jet; whereas, in the other regions of the room recirculating airflow patterns are formed, including at the periphery of the supply air jet (Khankari 2017a, Khankari 2017b).
The application of electronically commutated motors (ECMs) into series FPTUs has made it possible for engineers to specify FPTUs that can provide significant energy savings over fixed airflow PSC FPTUs.
Figure 8 presents the relationship between the aerodynamic resistance and airflow distribution ratio when the airflows in the 8-channel cyclone are regulated by quarter-rings without holes.
Using flow designing fluid simulation software Solidworks Flow Simulation flow analysis of symmetrical and asymmetrical profile blades at different airflow velocities was performed.
The test object is instrumented with a sensitive balance to measure the forces generated by airflow; or, the airflow may have smoke or other substances injected to make the flow lines around the object visible.
Iteration 1 reduced the percentage of satisfactory ASTM metrics by 7%, but further tuning of the model with diffuser airflows in iterations 2 and 3 increased it by 28%.
The Teflon airflow distributor allows the container to run in contact with the surface and this can be customised to suit the line speed and container, in order to achieve maximum cleaning.
In general, airflow can be analyzed using three types of methods: experimental, theoretical, and numerical simulation.
Keeping pace with the ever changing finishing market, Airflow has developed a comprehensive product range to meet the varied requirements of companies involved in powder coating.
The basic difference between left- and right-nostril sniffs depends on airflow, explains Noam Sobel of Stanford University.
However, the air temperatures (Figures 3 and 6) and total airflows (Figures 4 and 5) are different between the two limits.
