A physical time step was chosen such that the airfoils moved 1/200th of a chord length for each time step.
However, as time evolves, rates of particle breakage and coalescence approach a kinetic equilibrium condition, which causes the stabilization of the number of droplets and of the average chord length.
It takes a four chord length to maintain the right stability, which is why the slender helicopter blades would stall soon at a more vertical position," the researcher said.
According to the company, the Chord-X Mitral Valve Chordal Repair System includes the Chord-X Chordal Sizer allowing accurate measurement of artificial chord length and the Chord-X Pre-Measured Loops designed to save OR time and standardize artificial chord replacement.
Neuhart and Pendergraft [9] visualized recirculation zones behind GF in their water tunnel experiments and also recommended to keep the GF height less than 2% of the chord length to reduce drag penalty which was also verified by Myose et al.
The univariate analyses indicated significant differences along the extent of white on the primaries, claw chord length of the third toe, bill depth, and P6 color vertex angle, and mean P6 feather score; body mass (P = 0.
5, each element of the blade undergoes a slightly different flow because they have a different rotational speed, a different chord length C and a different twist angle for a blade twisted [beta] is schematic of blade elements; dr is radial length of element; r is rotor radius; [OMEGA] is angular velocity of rotor [13].
The real-time mean chord length measurement over time describes the aggregate size distribution based on the aggregation efficiency and breakage rates.
Among the topics are chord length distribution densities of selected elementary geometric figures, particle-to-particle interference as a useful tool, scattering patterns and structure functions of Boolean models, interrelations between the moments of the chord length distributions of random two-phase systems, and exercises on problems of characterizing particles.
Chord length (co-axial distance from the lamina to anterior vertebral cortex along the axis of pedicle) (CL): Tabulation of the CL of 12 thoracic vertebrae is shown in table 5.
The same study showed that the aerodynamic effects of ice on an airfoil are a function of the location of the ice with respect to the airfoil's pressure distribution, the ratio of the ice shape height over the chord length of the wing and the geometry of the ice shape itself.
