wind

A popular term for the result of air swallowing by greedy babies. Air swallowed along with a feed becomes compressed by PERISTALSIS and may cause COLIC and much crying. Slower feeding, dill water and silicone polymer oils, to reduce surface tension and form froth, are helpful.

Patient discussion about wind

Q. second wind My cousin is an experienced aerobic for nearly 2 years. She does vigorous exercises. How a ''second wind'' affects her and what is it?

A. The term ‘second wind is mostly known to the people who are related to the fitness. No matter how fit you are, the first few minutes into vigorous exercise you'll feel out of breath, and your muscles may ache. Your body isn't able to transport oxygen to the active muscles quickly enough. As a result, your muscles burn carbohydrates an aerobically, causing an increase in lactic acid production. Gradually, your body makes the transition to aerobic metabolism and begins to burn nutrients (carbohydrates and fats) aerobically. This shift over to aerobic metabolism coincides with your getting ''back in stride'' (a.k.a. the ''second wind''). The more you train and the more fit you become, the sooner you will get your ''breath'' back and reach an aerobic steady state that you can maintain for a relatively extended duration.

Recently, hybrid approaches have been focused on improving the wind speed prediction precision.
Among them, the wind speed recorded by the anemometers at a height of 43 m on tower number 160 is used as the wind speed for the 1st section and that at a height of 20 m on the 1st wind tower is used for the 2nd section; the speed at a height of 20 m on the 2nd wind tower is employed for the 3rd section and that at a height of 20 m on the 3rd wind tower is used for the 4th section.
(1) The Lorenz system is introduced into the wind speed prediction model to describe the effect of atmospheric motion on wind speed, which provides a new idea for the field of wind speed prediction.
This means that wind speed in the two cites is likely to have repeating patterns on a daily base (Period=1/355 or 1/349 year =1 day) and both of New York and Austin have a strong annual cycle (Period= 1 year).
(3) Wind speed frequency distribution, based on data showing how many hours during the year the wind blows within a certain speed range (this range of combined data points is called bin data).
Malaysia falls on the region in Southeast Asia which has a very low wind speed which is below 5m/s [4].
Wind speeds reached up to 46 knots yesterday with a wide area of dust generated over Kuwait and travelling to Bahrain.
To further complicate matters, the channelling and distortion of wind flow over the steep cliffs surrounding the runway induces unsteady fluctuations in wind speed, commonly known as turbulence.
The current study aims to estimate the wind energy potential of the ECS by using a 30-year, 6-hour, 10 m wind speed of ECMWF computed by the WAVEWATCH III (WW3) model.
