mean equivalent wind


mean equivalent wind
The overall wind effect when wind velocity varies irregularly with height and the aircraft is required to spend varying intervals of time at these heights. In this case, the overall wind effect is calculated, and the resultant is known as the mean equivalent wind. This is applied in various navigational computations.
