.... Trains had never been streamlined. Albert Dean completely enclosed the underside of the car to reduce drag, and he tested his design with a model in a wind tunnel at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It was later determined that the amount of wind resistance brought about by Dean’s streamlining...

.... The chassis contains a combination of extruded and sheet parts to provide strength and durability. The “tunnel” of the sled, usually made from alloy 5052 sheet, Fig. 19.6b is part of the chassis and provides the driver’s seat and footrest. The tunnel of the sled can experience cosmetic corrosion, which...

... a solid can be measured on aircraft with pitot tube device or even wind tunnels. Friction of ship hulls versus water has been measured by restraining the ship ashore with a line fastened to a force-measuring bollard as the ship powers to pull away. Of course, wind force can be measured by rotating...
