general intelligence factor

(redirected from G-loading)

general intelligence factor

Abbreviation: g
The hypothetical common feature identified by all intelligence (IQ) tests. The concept of general intelligence was developed by Charles Spearman, a British psychologist and statistician, who noticed that students who do well in one subject tend to do well in all school subjects and that students who do poorly in one field of study also lag behind in others. He proposed that the general ability to master academic material was due to superior general intelligence and that specific cognitive talents correlated with overall intellectual superiority. This concept, like many others in the field of psychometrics and intelligence testing, is controversial.

I provide inputs to increase or decrease lift, depending on the flight trajectory and g-loading. This training takes place in the centrifuge, providing a direct result of increased g-force.
Even shallow banks impose additional G-loading, so conventional wisdom is to refrain from turning and plow straight on ahead--unless, of course, there's a chance to turn around before things get too bad.
As a last-ditch effort, we thoroughly discussed and elected to cycle the gear, manually extending the gear and G-loading the aircraft in an attempt to safely get the gear down.
SNAP, a single-seat, aerobatic LSA to enter the market in 2012 (hopefully the name has nothing to do handling high g-loading) ...
None of this is rocket science, but we came away with a much better understanding of the fundamental importance of angle of attack, as well as the effects of G-loading, roll-yaw coupling and negative roll damping.
The extra weight will result in a greater occurrence of neck injuries under g-loading conditions.
It also drives home the point that the "g-loading" so strongly emphasized by Murray and Herrnstein measures only agreement among tests - not predictive power for socioeconomic outcomes.
Banking increases G-loading, so no steeper than standard rate, please.
Start throwing in some G-loading and the time between warning onset and an actual stall gets shorter as G increases.
We noted, "The NTSB's probable cause finding combines the G-loading effects of those maneuvers with the atmospheric conditions forecast to exist and concludes the aircraft encountered a wind gust that combined with the G-loading to impose on the airframe loads in excess of its design."
When we fly the airplane within its operating envelope--a combination of speed, G-loading and AoA--stalls are not a problem.
In other words, the wing will automatically shed G-loading before it incurs G-induced damage.
