    The experimental data available on a 65° swept-back, cropped delta wing with a canard has been analysed to study the effects of canard. Two sets of results are available : the first set is with a wing having sharp leading edges and the second set with a wing having rounded' leading edges. The tests were carried out at Mach numbers of 0.4 and 0.85 (Reynolds - number of 9.106 based on wing root chore) for the first set and at 0.5, 0.7, 0.85 and 1.2 (Reynolds number of 4.5.10^6 based on wing root chord) for the second set. The main effect of the canard is to delay leading edge separation in the forward part of the rounded leading edge wing. In the case of the sharp leading edge wing, although earlier measurements have shown that the canard is able to suppress leading edge separation, there is no direct evidence of this in the present measurements. However, the results do show a significant weakening of the wing vortex in the presence of the canard

    Self-Similar Solutions for Viscous and Resistive ADAF

    In this paper, the self-similar solution of resistive advection dominated accretion flows (ADAF) in the presence of a pure azimuthal magnetic field is investigated. The mechanism of energy dissipation is assumed to be the viscosity and the magnetic diffusivity due to turbulence in the accretion flow. It is assumed that the magnetic diffusivity and the kinematic viscosity are not constant and vary by position and α\alpha-prescription is used for them. In order to solve the integrated equations that govern the behavior of the accretion flow, a self-similar method is used. The solutions show that the structure of accretion flow depends on the magnetic field and the magnetic diffusivity. As, the radial infall velocity and the temperature of the flow increase, and the rotational velocity decreases. Also, the rotational velocity for all selected values of magnetic diffusivity and magnetic field is sub-Keplerian. The solutions show that there is a certain amount of magnetic field that the rotational velocity of the flow becomes zero. This amount of the magnetic field depends on the gas properties of the disc, such as adiabatic index and viscosity, magnetic diffusivity, and advection parameters. The solutions show the mass accretion rate increases by adding the magnetic diffusivity and in high magnetic pressure case, the ratio of the mass accretion rate to the Bondi accretion rate decreases as magnetic field increases. Also, the study of Lundquist and magnetic Reynolds numbers based on resistivity indicates that the linear growth of magnetorotational instability (MRI) of the flow decreases by resistivity. This property is qualitatively consistent with resistive magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) simulations.Comment: 18 pages, 3 figures, accepted by JA&

    This paper presents a measurement of the cross-section for high transverse momentum W and Z bosons produced in pp collisions and decaying to all-hadronic final states. The data used in the analysis were recorded by the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider at a centre-of-mass energy of √s = 7 TeV;{\rm Te}{\rm V}andcorrespondtoanintegratedluminosityof and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 4.6\;{\rm f}{{{\rm b}}^{-1}}.ThemeasurementisperformedbyreconstructingtheboostedWorZbosonsinsinglejets.ThereconstructedjetmassisusedtoidentifytheWandZbosons,andajetsubstructuremethodbasedonenergyclusterinformationinthejetcentre−of−massframeisusedtosuppressthelargemulti−jetbackground.Thecross−sectionforeventswithahadronicallydecayingWorZboson,withtransversemomentum. The measurement is performed by reconstructing the boosted W or Z bosons in single jets. The reconstructed jet mass is used to identify the W and Z bosons, and a jet substructure method based on energy cluster information in the jet centre-of-mass frame is used to suppress the large multi-jet background. The cross-section for events with a hadronically decaying W or Z boson, with transverse momentum {{p}_{{\rm T}}}\gt 320\;{\rm Ge}{\rm V}andpseudorapidity and pseudorapidity |\eta |\lt 1.9,ismeasuredtobe, is measured to be {{\sigma }_{W+Z}}=8.5\pm 1.7$ pb and is compared to next-to-leading-order calculations. The selected events are further used to study jet grooming techniques
