THE explosion caused damage to the properties in several different ways, including from the blast wave, shock waves, fragmentation, vibration and the blast wind.
Other local and international studies have also reported similar findings.19-21 This disproportionately higher number of injuries to the extremities can be explained by the dynamics of the blast wind, affecting extremities to a greater extent.22 Blast extremity injuries are often horrific and distract attention from other critical, life-threatening injuries.
The tilt angle of the blade control system is one of the mechanisms that control the wind turbine works by controlling the aerodynamics of the blade through the tilt control blade angle to the direction of the wind (angle of attack) as shown in Figure 2, this blade angle changes will affect the angular velocity (RPM) of the shaft due to a change in the amount of power received by the blast wind blade is converted into rotational speed shaft shown in Figure 1.

Southwest blast wind, possibly exceeding 100 km/hour, is expected across Egypt, GAC's HotPortNews reported.
There is a thermal pulse, a pressure wave or blast wind, and shrapnel.
"Blast wind will generally end in one or two minutes after burst and burns, cuts and bruises are no different than conventional injuries.
With continued gas expansion, the pressure drops, creating a relative vacuum referred to as "blast underpressure." Thus, the blast wind initially moves away from the explosion, but as atmospheric pressure drops below normal, the blast winds are reversed.
A heritage statement with the planning application said: "The explosion caused physical damage to the properties in several different ways, including the blast wave, shock waves, fragmentation, vibration and the blast wind.
They also found that the blast wind, not the shock wave, from the IED blast leads to traumatic brain injury (TBI) and long-term consequences, including CTE.
Cottrell Boyce was one of the 'children of the children of the Blitz', who was, as he describes it, blown out of the city and into the new estates by the "blast wind" of all those wartime bombs that left Liverpool a "prairie of rubble".
