The direction , velocity , and season of these winds should be noted as to just how they will affect the recreation use and your maintenance and operation of the area .

The dependence of the arc voltage upon the mass flow velocity of the transpirating gas was investigated for various arc lengths and currents between 100 Amp and 200 Amp .

Qualitative observations were made and high-speed motion_pictures were taken to study flow phenomena in the arc at various mass flow velocities .

The heat transfer to the anode in free_burning arcs is enhanced by a hot gas_jet flowing from the cathode towards the anode with velocities up **f .

Argon was also blown at low velocities ( mass flow_rate **f ) through a tube coaxial with the cathode as an additional precaution against contamination of the arc by air .
