Gravity Part 3 - Astral Electronic - Gravity (File)

GravityModel only pays attention to the following keywords. AngularVelocity because it can be measured precisely is the same for the gravity model and the reference ellipsoid. ModelRadius is merely a scaling parameter for the gravity model and there's no requirement that Gravity Part 3 - Astral Electronic - Gravity (File) be close to the equatorial radius of the earth although that's typically how it is chosen.

ModelMass and ReferenceMass need not be the same and, indeed, they are slightly difference for egm The coefficient file NAME. This is followed by 2 sets of spherical harmonic coefficients. The first of these gives the gravity potential and the second gives the zeta-to-N corrections to the geoid height. The format for each set of coefficients is:.

Although the coefficient file is in little endian order, GeographicLib can read it on big endian machines. It can only be read on machines which store doubles in IEEE format. Listed here are issues that I encountered using the NGA code:. Ideally, the geoid represents a surface of constant gravitational potential which approximates mean sea level.

In reality some approximations are taken in determining this surface. The steps taking by GravityModel in computing the geoid height are described here in the context of EGM A useful discussion of the problems with defining a geoid is given by Dru A. GravityModel::GeoidHeight reproduces the results of the several NGA codes for harmonic synthesis with the following maximum discrepancies:.

The formula Gravity Part 3 - Astral Electronic - Gravity (File) the gravity anomaly vector involves computing gravity and normal gravity at two different points Gravity Part 3 - Astral Electronic - Gravity (File) the displacement between the points unknown ab initio. Since the gravity anomaly is already a small quantity it is sometimes acceptable to employ approximations that change the quantities by O f.

Note that delta compares the gravity and the normal gravity at the same point; the gravity anomaly vector is then found by estimating the gradient of the normal gravity in the limit that the earth is spherically symmetric.

The components of the anomaly are then given by. NormalGravity computes the normal gravity accurately and avoids issue 3 of Comments on the NGA harmonic synthesis code. All of the supported models use WGS84 for the reference ellipsoid. This has see TR The value of GM includes the mass of the atmosphere and so strictly only applies above the earth's atmosphere.

In other words the effect is about 1 part in a million; by way of comparison, buoyancy effects are about times larger. The egm model includes many terms over 2 million spherical harmonics. For that reason computations using this model may be slow; for example it takes about 78 ms to compute the geoid height at a single point. There are two ways to speed up this computation:. Both of these techniques are illustrated by the following code, which computes a table of geoid heights on a regular grid and writes on the result in a.

On an 8-processor Intel 3. Without these optimizations, the computation would have taken about 50 days! GeographicLib 1. Because acceleration due to gravity is a lot higher on eve, your poor little Kerbal was pulled iinto the surface with much more force than Kerbin etc so the fall was so strong it killed him. Also you're realistically never getting them home again, Eve is so hard to get into Gravity Part 3 - Astral Electronic - Gravity (File) stable orbit around because the atmosphere is so much thicker and the gravity is also higher.

Wh1ppet View Profile View Posts. The atmosphere on Eva is thick enough that you could think of it as being almost fluid in the way it acts. Zombo View Profile View Posts. Eve is an extremely hard planet to land on. Its even harder to get off again.

Probably the most dangerous and difficult planet in the game. Very thick atmosphere, and heavy gravity. You cannot jump on the surface, or use jetpack. So you must have a ladder that is reachable, to climb back into your lander. Thats alot. So basically its not a planet to land on, unless you consider the landing party expendable. Or you can try to design a craft able to do the job. Good luck! Eve also has some known bugs because of the harsh physics and the game engines limitations. One is sinking into the ground.

Eve is perfect for Rovers though. Last edited by Zombo ; 18 Oct, pm. Jon View Profile View Posts. In short, Rather High. Film Doctor. October 25, Retrieved January 1, American Cinematographer.
