AERODYNAMIC LOAD [4 records]

Record 1 2010-05-18

English

Subject field(s)
  • Aeroindustry
CONT

Divergence occurs when a lifting surface deflects under aerodynamic load so as to increase the applied load, or move the load so that the twisting effect on the structure is increased.

OBS

aerodynamic load: term officially approved by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

PHR

High, negative airload.

Key term(s)
  • air load
  • air-load

French

Domaine(s)
  • Constructions aéronautiques
CONT

On peut dire que cette méthode figure parmi les meilleures pour le calcul de performances des hélices (traction, puissance, rendement), celui de la répartition de charge aérodynamique sur les pales, ainsi que celui du souffle à l'aval de l'hélice.

OBS

charge aérodynamique : terme uniformisé par l'Organisation de l'aviation civile internationale (OACI) et par les Comités d'uniformisation de la terminologie aéronautique (CUTA) - Opérations aériennes et Maintenance.

PHR

Charge aérodynamique élevée, négative.

Spanish

Campo(s) temático(s)
  • Industria aeronáutica
OBS

Record 2 2010-05-10

English

Subject field(s)
  • Aerodynamics and Theory of Gases
DEF

The force between a body and a gaseous fluid caused by their relative motion.

French

Domaine(s)
  • Théorie des gaz et aérodynamique
CONT

Force aérodynamique sur un profil. Placé dans un écoulement de fluide, un profil est soumis à une force qui dépend de l'incidence et de la vitesse de l'écoulement ainsi que la forme du profil.

Record 3 2010-05-10

English

Subject field(s)
  • Launching and Space Maneuvering
CONT

The launcher had disintegrated due to the aerodynamic load of the angle of flight which was caused by the deflections of the solid booster nozzles.

French

Domaine(s)
  • Lancement et manœuvres dans l'espace

Record 4 2007-02-13

English

Subject field(s)
  • Launchers (Astronautics)
CONT

The launcher began to disintegrate at about 39 seconds because of high aerodynamic loads resulting from an angle of attack of more than 20 degrees, which led to separation of the boosters from the main stage, which in turn triggered the self-destruct system of the launcher.

French

Domaine(s)
  • Lanceurs (Astronautique)
CONT

Nous nous intéressons à la partie atmosphérique du vol pendant laquelle le pilotage est critique. Le but de la loi de pilotage est de limiter les efforts aérodynamiques auxquels le lanceur est soumis tout au long de cette phase en asservissant la position de l'engin autour de son centre d'inertie qui décrit la trajectoire commandée par le guidage.
