mass velocity

mass velocity

[′mas və‚läs·əd·ē]
(fluid mechanics)
The weight flow rate of a fluid divided by the cross-sectional area of the enclosing chamber or conduit; for example, lb/(h·ft2).

At the same time, steam in the VV will be discharged to the ST in saturated steam critical flow conditions, and in this case, also the mass velocity [G.sub.v,VV] can be evaluated by a simple model.
After the collision with the percussive horn, the free mass velocity is [[??].sub.k-1].
'It's "It just took a while to build up momentum, putting out four records, hopefully of high quality, and it built up to this mass velocity thing."
where [m.sub.j] and [J.sub.2] stand for inertial parameters of the link, [v.sub.G2] is the center of mass velocity and J3 represents the reduced moment of inertia that comes from the group preceding in the reduction propagation.
In this particular case [GAMMA] = 0 and [V.sub.ext] = 2[a.sup.2.sub.1]/27[a.sup.2.sub.3] and the center of mass velocity of the soliton is a constant.
Similarly, for the center of mass velocity (d [r.sub.CM]/dt),
--[kg], conductivity becomes mass velocity -- [kg/sec], inductance becomes the reciprocal value of mass acceleration
The increased center of mass velocity was also reported by others (Miller and Bartlett, 1996; Walters et al., 1990) and associated to increase the impulse momentum toward to the basket (Elliott, 1992; Miller and Bartlett, 1993; Satern, 1993).
where G = mass velocity of fluid (weight/second divided by the cross-sectional area, or lb/s x [ft.sup.2]); [f.sub.m] = mean friction factor; p = pressure; [v.sub.m] = mean specific volume; L = length of the pipe; [r.sub.h] = hydraulic radius; and z = height.
The experimental parameters--vapor quality, saturation temperature, mass velocity, and heat flux--are manually controlled.
