The Ultimate Guide to the Law of Cause and Effect by Daniele Prandel

The Messerschmitt Bf 109 and Mitsubishi Zero had the exact opposite problem in which the controls became ineffective. At higher speeds, the pilot simply couldn't move the controls because there was too much airflow over the control surfaces. The planes would become difficult to maneuver, and at high enough speeds aircraft without this problem could out-turn them.

Law Cause Effect Daniele Prandel

Wave drag is a sudden rise in drag on the aircraft, caused by air building up in front of it. At lower speeds, this air has time to "get out of the way", guided by the air in front of it that is in contact with the aircraft. But at the speed of sound, this can no longer happen, and the air which was previously following the streamline around the aircraft now hits it directly. The amount of power needed to overcome this effect is considerable. The critical mach is the speed at which some of the air passing over the aircraft's wing becomes supersonic.

Figure 2 is plotted to analyze the heat transfer for combined effects of , , , , , and on the temperature profiles. This figure indicates that an increase in and results in a decrease in the temperature profiles, whereas these profiles increase for the increasing values of , , and . The radiation parameter is very effective for the thickening of the thermal boundary layer which releases the heat energy from the flow region and causes the cooling of the system. Physically, it is true due to the fact that temperature increases by increasing the Rosseland approximation. Increasing values of cause the temperature to rise up. This is due to the fact that nanoparticles dissipate energy in the form of heat which causes the thermal boundary layer thickness to increase in the case of nanofluids and ultimately a localized rise in temperature of the fluid occurs.

Figure 3 is prepared to study the effects of incorporated different flow parameters on concentration profiles. It results that the increasing values of and cause a decrease in the mass transfer. However, the concentration increases for large values of , , , and . Physically, the variations of , , , , and are important in the boundary layer flow and play a significant role in shortening the concentration boundary layer for the mass fraction. All profiles discussed above descend smoothly in the free stream satisfying boundary conditions. This ensures the accuracy of the obtained numerical results.

Figure 5a shows a comparison of the AoA distribution along the blade span at four different inflow velocities (\(7\, \hbox m s^-1\), \(10 \,\hbox m s^-1\), \(15\, \hbox m s^-1\), \(20\, \hbox m s^-1\)). Results correspond to the mean value of three methods selected from literature (AAT, 3P, ZG, respectively after [22,23,24]). In the same figure with the solid black line is indicated the value of the stall angle of attack for the S809 airfoil. For an inflow wind velocity value equal to \(7 \,\hbox m s^-1\) are observed AoA larger than the two-dimensional stall value from root up to 50% of the span, indicating the need for correction. Figure 5b shows the comparison between two dimensional, stand still and rotating lift along the blade length, following the same schema derived from [21]. Results indicate the presence of augmentation effects at the inboard part of the blade, due to the increment of lift coefficients. Lift coefficient reduces as the radial position increases. The enhancement of \(C_L\) is observed until \(r/R=60\%\). The calculated values of two dimensional \(C_L\) at middle span-wise positions have good agreement with the rotating case. However, standstill polar coefficients show lower values than those for the two-dimensional case, probably due to large finiteness effects at root affecting the solution up to the mid-span. In areas close to the tip, the presence of trailing vortices induces down-wash (tip effects), which causes a decrement in terms of lift coefficient.

Bernoulli's principle is easy to demonstrate. Hold both ends of a piece of paper in your two hands and blow over the upper surface of the paper. The paper appears to rise, as if by magic. The "magic" is that air passing over the surface of the paper causes reduced pressure from above on the paper. Normal atmospheric pressure below the paper pushes it upward. This simple demonstration also illustrates the principle on which airplanes fly. Air flying over the wings of the airplane produces a lifting effect from below on the wings.

Boundary layer effects. Bernoulli's principle works very well in many cases. But assuming that fluids have no viscosity, as Bernoulli did, does introduce some errors in real life. The reason for these errors is that even in fluids with very low viscosity, the fluid right next to the solid boundary sticks to the surface. This effect is known as the no-slip condition. Thus, however fast or easily the fluid away from the boundary may be moving, the fluid near the boundary has to slow down gradually and come to a complete stop exactly at the boundary. This effect is what causes drag on automobiles and airplanes in spite of the low viscosity of air.
