Blade Surface

Some articles on surface, blade, blades:

Propeller (marine) - History - Marine Propeller Cavitation
... most common types of propeller cavitation are suction side surface cavitation and tip vortex cavitation ... Suction side surface cavitation forms when the propeller is operating at high rotational speeds or under heavy load (high blade lift coefficient) ... The pressure on the upstream surface of the blade (the "suction side") can drop below the vapor pressure of the water, resulting in the formation of a pocket of vapor ...
Turbine Blade - Cooling
... So the cooling of blade becomes essential ... required for this purpose is 1-3% of main flow and blade temperature can be reduced by 200-300°C ... There are many types of cooling used in gas turbine blades convection, film,transpiration cooling, cooling effusion ,pin fin cooling etc which fall under ...
History - Marine Propeller Cavitation
... Cavitation is the formation of vapor bubbles in water near a moving propeller blade in regions of low pressure due to Bernoulli's principle ... The two most common types of propeller cavitation are suction side surface cavitation and tip vortex cavitation ... Suction side surface cavitation forms when the propeller is operating at high rotational speeds or under heavy load (high blade lift coefficient) ...

Famous quotes containing the words surface and/or blade:

    We’ve forgotten what it’s like not to be able to reach the light switch. We’ve forgotten a lot of the monsters that seemed to live in our room at night. Nevertheless, those memories are still there, somewhere inside us, and can sometimes be brought to the surface by events, sights, sounds, or smells. Children, though, can never have grown-up feelings until they’ve been allowed to do the growing.
    Fred Rogers (20th century)

    I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched seabeams glitter in the dark near the Tennhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain. Time to die.
    David Webb Peoples, U.S. screenwriter, and Ridley Scott. Roy Batty, Blade Runner, final words before dying—as an android he had a built-in life span that expired (1982)
