wind

pronounced WIN'd Vox populi The rushing of air from one point to another, generally induced by differences in land temperature. See Fire wind.

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.

Web-Tension Principle of Winding. When winding elastic films, web tension is the dominant principle of winding used to control roll hardness.
When winding film on a pure center winder as shown in Fig.
For winding on pure center winders, the starting tension should be towards the higher value of the suggested tension range.
In center winding, the spindle torque through the center of the roll provides the web tension.
An advantage of center winding is that this process can wind softer rolls.
When surface winding elastic materials, web tension is the dominant winding principle.
Macro's latest Automax C (center) and S (surface) winders have an optional "kiss" winding mode that uses a special servo-driven lay-on roll to provide very light lay-on force--just enough to remove the air.
Tecno uses AC vector drives on the winding roll and AC servo drives for tension control on other driven rolls.
The dual winding station has a special winding track and shaft movement, which allow the idle shaft to bypass the shaft currently winding and return to the start position near the lay-on roll without disturbing the web.
Addex Inc., Boston - A novel surface/center-assist and gap winder with a special lay-on and cutover capability also can do reverse winding. Developed by Reinhold in Germany, the machine's winding shaft remains fixed, and the contact roll moves in a carriage along a track to maintain tension as the roll increases in diameter.
Both test methods have some limitations, however, since they are testing point loads rather than the uniform loading a core experiences during winding.
Straight cores promote uniform winding tension and thus prevent film from wrinkling.
