The dead nestling was mostly feathered and about 9-d-old, based on the stubby tail feathers and the flight feathers still mostly sheathed (wing chord = 42 mm); the only visible wound on the dead nestling was a patch of torn skin on the neck near the base of the mandible (Fig.

2) using digital vernier to an accuracy of 0.1 mm: total length (mm), wing chord (mm), tail length (mm) and bill size (bill to culmen, bill to nostril, and bill width; mm).
Standard measures were taken on all captured birds including mass, wing chord, and exposed culmen.
An airplane's forward and aft CG limits may be represented by their position relative to and as a percentage of the wing chord (the imaginary line from the leading edge to trailing edge of airfoil, also known as the mean aerodynamic chord).
While there is some flexibility in mounting location--perhaps positioning the sensor so it can be accessed from an existing inspection port in the wing--its accuracy is dependant on it being mounted at 1 percent total wing chord.

What are the actual cooling temperatures governing heat transfer, in the presence of variable frictional heating along the wing chord of a 777 at Mach 0.80, between the cold air outside and the fuel inside the wing tanks?
Measurements of head length ([+ or -] 0.1 mm), wing chord length ([+ or -] 1.0 mm), and weight ([+ or -] 5.0 g) were recorded and used to calculate the BCI.
It also had the length of its wings measured, recorded as wing chord length, or the distance between the bird's wrist to the tip of the longest primary feather.
The following parameters were taken for calculation: L=2m; r0=1[m.sup.2]/s; [[GAMMA].sub.0].01L; b=0.1L; p--over the range from 0.5L to 10L, where b is the wing chord.
