Finite Wing Theory To date we have considered airfoil theory, or said another way, the theory of infinite wings. Real wings are, of course, finite with a defined length in the “z-direction.” Basic Wing Nomenclature Wing Span, b – the length of the wing in the z-direction Wing Chord, c – equivalent to the airfoil chord length

The main function of these is to distribute the payload and the forces which act on the aircraft wing including shear forces, tensile forces and direct forces. 1.1 Basic definition of wing parts 1.1.1 Spar Longitudinal member in the wing.

WORKING PRINCIPLE OF ROTARY EVAPORATOR Rotary Evaporator is essentially a thin film evaporator also called rotary vacuum evaporator. A rotary evaporator is a device used in Chemical Laboratories for efficient and gentle removal of solvents from samples by evaporation. The main components of a rotary evaporator are:

3) With one hand on each side of the Rotary Joint, push and pull the Rotary Joint downward until the Rotary Joint has been freed from the Driving Unit. 4) Squeeze the open end of the Rotary Joint Ring together to separate the Flask Remover and Rotary Joint Ring. 5) Re-attach the Flask Remover to the Driving Unit.
