Wind Stress Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
wind_stress = Drag Coefficient*Density of air*Wind Speed at a Height of 10 m^2
τo = CD*D* V10^2
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Drag Coefficient- Drag Coefficient is a dimensionless quantity that is used to quantify the drag or resistance of an object in a fluid environment, such as air or water
Density of air - Density of air taken at standard conditions (Measured in Kilogram per Meter³)
Wind Speed at a Height of 10 m - Wind Speed at a Height of 10 m Consideration (Measured in Meter per Second)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Drag Coefficient: 100 --> No Conversion Required
Density of air: 2 Kilogram per Meter³ --> 2 Kilogram per Meter³ No Conversion Required
Wind Speed at a Height of 10 m: 220 Meter per Second --> 220 Meter per Second No Conversion Required

τo = CD*D* V10^2

What is Drag Coefficient?

Drag Coefficient is a dimensionless quantity that is used to quantify the drag or resistance of an object in a fluid environment, such as air or water. It is used in the drag equation in which a lower drag coefficient indicates the object will have less aerodynamic or hydrodynamic drag.

How to Calculate Wind Stress?

Wind Stress calculator uses wind_stress = Drag Coefficient*Density of air*Wind Speed at a Height of 10 m^2 to calculate the Wind Stress, The Wind Stress is the shear stress exerted by the wind on the surface of large bodies of water – such as oceans, seas, estuaries and lakes. It is the force component parallel to the surface, per unit area, as applied by the wind on the water surface. Wind Stress and is denoted by τo symbol.

How to calculate Wind Stress using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Wind Stress, enter Drag Coefficient (CD), Density of air (D) and Wind Speed at a Height of 10 m ( V10) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Wind Stress calculation can be explained with given input values -> 9.680E+6 = 100*2*220^2.

FAQ

What is Wind Stress?
The Wind Stress is the shear stress exerted by the wind on the surface of large bodies of water – such as oceans, seas, estuaries and lakes. It is the force component parallel to the surface, per unit area, as applied by the wind on the water surface and is represented as τo = CD*D* V10^2 or wind_stress = Drag Coefficient*Density of air*Wind Speed at a Height of 10 m^2. Drag Coefficient is a dimensionless quantity that is used to quantify the drag or resistance of an object in a fluid environment, such as air or water, Density of air taken at standard conditions and Wind Speed at a Height of 10 m Consideration.
