1. Describe the effect plowing can have on crash forces when the impact surface is soft soil. Earth gouging and scooping of soil occur when the structure makes initial contact with the ground which minimize the acceleration and force levels to which the structure is subjected. Soft soil can cause plowing and rapid deceleration if there is a large horizontal velocity component. A high-speed longitudinal impact into water can also cause high loads from water plowing as water enters through…

Air Transportation

Abstract Air transportation has become very useful and in flux due to the new technologies used. The theories, contributions and laws of aerodynamics are included and investigated in this paper work. The three laws of motion developed by Sir Isaac Newton have been very useful in explaining “Why do airplanes/aircrafts fly?”, and the law of Bernoulli for the theory of lift exerted by the wing of an airplane was also discussed here. Introduction Aerodynamics of Airplane Wings In the “Grolier…
