Crosswind Aerodynamics of Sport Utility Vehicle, PhD Thesis, Cranfield University.
A stiff crosswind can cause super hot loads and even larger shot sizes to drift off target by as much as a full yard.
The laser illuminates the target, the pulse reflected from the target being affected by power fluctuations induced by atmospheric turbulences, these fluctuations are measured by two horizontally spaced detectors and thanks to a correlation function fluctuations are transformed into a crosswind measurement.
The mishap investigation showed the crosswind was very slightly over the F/A-18 NATOPS crosswind landing limit.
Walker, in front of the 3,500-foot crosswind runway.
Tom Watson is playing great, this is a different wind and he's one of the best crosswind golfers there is.
An Air Accident Investigation Branch report says the 49-year-old pilot, who had 120 hours flying experience, could not stop the aircraft leaving the runway after landing in a crosswind.
Building shape can affect wind loads from vortex shedding: wind whirlpools form at building corners and then peel off, imparting crosswind forces.
I would have preferred that they kept the crosswind runway.
According to the paper, BMW Philippines Corporation, Columbian Autocar Corporation, Honda Cars Philippines, Isuzu Philippines Corporation, Mitsubishi Motors Philippines, Nissan Motor Philippines, Toyota Motor Philippines, Universal Motors Corporation and Viking Cars all provided vehicles to compete in the event, with Toyota's Vios proving the most fuel-efficient sedan and Isuzu's Crosswind taking top honors in the Asian utility vehicle (AUV) category.
But seconds later Mehrtens again coped brilliantly with the crosswind to add another three points.
But the CAL flight operations manual sets the maximum crosswind limit for landing on a wet runway at 24 knots, and the Boeing-MD-11 flight manual gives a maximum demonstrated crosswind limit of 35 knots.
