One of the worst things that could happen during a flight is turbulence
The researchers note that their modeling results need confirmation through observations, which could be carried out by airplanes, drones, or sounding balloons measuring the level of turbulence
and the electric field within a storm.
It would require a significant change in water temperature to match the effect of turbulence
China Eastern didn't specify when or where the turbulence
Recent studies have shown that the most common altitude for clear-air turbulence
per flight hour tends to peak at FL350, with moderate to severe turbulence
You can't see turbulence
nor can you predict where it's going to hit.
The TAPS software will reside on Gogo's server, which provides access to the necessary data generated by the aircraft to create reports of turbulence
Using the Gogo network, pilots in the cockpit will now be able to access real-time turbulence
reports and forecaster created alerts through Weathers flight planning and operations applications like WSI Fusion and WSI Pilotbrief, and aircraft communication displays.
intensity, length scales, spectra, which can all vary with height.
Let's say the airplane encounters a given gust of turbulence
that imparts some amount of force upon it.
To characterize aeronautical turbulence
one must specify its origin and its intensity.
The numerical investigation was carried out by full three-dimensional steady state compressible fluid CFD-simulation using Ansys Fluent, the employed model utilized the standard k-[epsilon] turbulence
model to solve the flow equations.
