Aerodynamic Wheel Covers
- A decorative metal or plastic disc that obscures a vehicles stamped steel wheels, lug nuts and/or hubs from view.
- (Wheel cover) A hubcap, wheel cover or wheel trim is a decorative disk on an automobile wheel that covers at least a central portion of the wheel. Cars with stamped steel wheels often use a full wheel cover that conceals the entire wheel.
- The first Cadillac wheel covers were introduced in 1932; it is rumored that chauffeurs and owners alike were getting tired of cleaning spoked wheels!
- Of or having a shape that reduces the drag from air moving past
- of or relating to aerodynamics
- streamlined: designed or arranged to offer the least resistant to fluid flow; "a streamlined convertible"
- Of or relating to aerodynamics
- (aerodynamics) aeromechanics: the branch of mechanics that deals with the motion of gases (especially air) and their effects on bodies in the flow
aerodynamic wheel covers - Fundamentals of
Fundamentals of Aerodynamics (Mcgraw Hill Series in Aeronautical and Aerospace Engineering)
In keeping with its bestselling previous editions, Fundamentals of Aerodynamics, Fifth Edition by John Anderson, offers the most readable, interesting, and up-to-date overview of aerodynamics to be found in any text.
The classic organization of the text has been preserved, as is its successful pedagogical features: chapter roadmaps, preview boxes, design boxes and summary section. Although fundamentals do not usually change over time, applications do and so various detailed content is modernized, and existing figures are replaced with modern data and illustrations. Historical topics, carefully developed examples, numerous illustrations, and a wide selection of chapter problems are found throughout the text to motivate and challenge students of aerodynamics.
Lane Motor Museum - Martin Aerodynamic 1928
"One-of-a-kind aerodynamic vehicle built by Martin Aircraft Company of Garden City, New York. Martin’s concept was to create a four-seater streamlined car along jaray principles. Notice the pontoon-shaped underbody, fully covered rear wheels, and a deep-sloping front with the body tapering toward the rear. It is powered by a 4 cylinder, water cooled rear engine and has airplane-type suspension–which means no springs. The aluminum body has one door that opens into the back seat. This Martin was built for Air Force General William “Billy” Mitchell of World War I fame. The Martin was presented at the 1932 National Automobile Show in New York but the Great Depression was detrimental to the Martin." Specifications: Manufacturer: Martin Aeroplane Factory Country of Origin: U.S.A. Drivetrain Configuration: Rear engine, rear wheel drive Engine: 4 cylinder continental Transmission: 3 speed Top Speed: 107 miles per hour Year of Production: 1928 Number Produced: 1 Original Cost: $17,000
Low flying remains an essential skill for military aircrew. UK forces have deployed repeatedly to potential trouble spots around the world usually with little or no warning. They have to undertake a variety of roles including reconnaissance, fast-jet or helicopter operations, search and rescue, transporting troops or the delivery of humanitarian aid to remote locations. Whatever missions we ask our Armed Forces to undertake the aircrew must be able to fulfil the task as effectively as possible, often without time for "work-up" training. Current Operations around the world see aircrew of both fixed and rotary wing aircraft undertaking operations at low level. They are only able to do this through specialist training gained through the use of the UK Low Flying System.The UK Military Low Flying System covers the open airspace of the whole of the UK and surrounding overseas areas from the surface to 2,000 feet above the ground or mean sea level.
aerodynamic wheel covers
Wow!!!... After wow, the first word that comes to mind upon looking at this amazing ring is: aerodynamic! Measuring approx. 18x18mm, this large AquamarineTopaz CZ is somewhat shaped like a half barrel (with a twist!). Long narrow vertical facets cover the entire upper surface, while matching facets cut horizontally cover the underpart. The result is a spectacular effect mimicking an invisible setting with a multitude of small stones full of fire and brilliance. The band separates into 2 tall arches that hug the outer edges of the stone beautifully. A true masterpiece of ingenuity. Pure, mesmerizing, dazzling! The ring measures approx. 23mm at the front and tapers down into a 6mm band at the back.
Heavily layered in a high polish Rhodium electroplate over Brass, for the look of White Gold: will not tarnish or discolor. (Rhodium is one of the metals belonging to the Platinum group).
Our stones are expertly hand cut and hand set, and carefully selected for color uniformity. The superb workmanship truly gives our pieces the actual look of Fine Jewelry.
