(mechanics)
The component of the linear acceleration of an aircraft or missile along its normal, or Z, axis.
The usual or typical acceleration.

## Normal Acceleration

the component of acceleration for a point in curvilinear motion that is directed along the principal normal to the trajectory toward the center of curvature; normal acceleration is also called centripetal acceleration. It is numerically equal to v2, where v is the velocity of the point and ρ is the radius of curvature of the trajectory. For circular motion the normal acceleration can be calculated from the formula 2, where r is the radius of the circle and ω is the angular velocity of rotation of the radius. For rectilinear motion the normal acceleration is zero.

Here, any potential design is made into a virtual rollercoaster prototype, which provides immediate feedback on the longitudinal, transverse and normal acceleration forces felt by passengers and on the car, as well as any corresponding structural loadings and stress build-up in the steel structure as it rides along.
2]) at the point B;while through the acceleration of the angle [delta] toward zero it produces a normal acceleration ([a.
Here, it follows from reasoning that under the influence of the acceleration of the relative space-time, point A produces on point B a normal acceleration and a centrifugal acceleration and vice versa as these accelerations are infinitesimal in comparison to the dynamics produced by absolute space-time, thus, the only important result here is the centrifugal accelerations which account for the expansion of the temporal universe.
On touchdown I saw the CAPC add max power, but I didn't feel the normal acceleration as we took off.

For a ring seated correctly, without eccentricity, perfectly round, with spindle speed, constant winding radius and delivery speed, it follows for traveler, of course theoretically, constant normal acceleration, constant speed and "zero" tangential acceleration.
In the same conditions as mentioned above, but with eccentric placement of the ring over the textile spindle, the traveller speed and normal acceleration have variations and tangential acceleration can take significant amounts.
The differences in the profiles and maximum values of the normal acceleration for the subjects resulted primarily from differences in the hub path radius profiles since the velocity profiles were similar.
