velocity distribution

[və′läs·əd·ē ‚di·strə‚byü·shən]
(statistical mechanics)
For the molecules of a gas, a function of velocity whose value at any velocity v is proportional to the number of molecules with velocities in an infinitesimal range about v, per unit velocity range.

The example of velocity distribution (source: own elaboration)
Vegetation plays an important role in altering flow characteristics (such as velocity distribution, Reynolds number, and Manning coefficient) compared with nonvegetated conditions in rivers [1].
Regarding wind velocity distribution during snowfall, the average wind velocity of three areas in the west coast was 3 m/s and the maximum wind velocity was 11.2 m/s, at the Mokpo weather station.
Under Newtonian flow, the velocity distribution reflected the difference of the shear strain rate across the channel.
Figure 1: Flow past a joukowski aerofoil: Chow[1979], Mushtaq[2011], Mushtaq and Shah [2012] given the modulus of the exact velocity distribution over the boundary of a Joukowski Aerofoil is Where r = radius of the circular cylinder (C.C.) =Joukowski transformation constant in equation (1) Boundary Conditions: Since the boundary conditions which are essential for the solution of the boundary of Joukowski Aerofoil for an irrotational and steady flows.
He's been working on the subject since 1996, when a seed grant allowed him to begin thinking about Maxwell and equidynamics, from which thinking sprang a paper about the roots of Maxwell's derivation of the velocity distribution. A grant from the National Science Foundation supported this book.
At low temperature (low speed), a dilute gas in equilibrium has a velocity distribution that follows the Maxwellian probability density function (PDF):
