Example text

As a measure of consequence, we have used vehicle-minutes of exposure within x distance of the truck multiplied by the accident rate. That is, as the truck moves along the road, the vehicles potentially exposed to the risk of fire and/or explosion are (1) vehicles traveling in the same direction as the truck and less than x distance behind the truck and (2) vehicles traveling in the opposite direction at a distance of x or less ahead of the truck. 5 miles. 5 by the probability of an accident to calculate consequence.

Strain gauges are used to measure instantaneous wing forces, and the integral of forces around a closed wing beat cycle can be measured to determine net flight forces.
