To push or drive with force; to drive, force, or impel; to shove; as, to thrust anything with the hand or foot, or with an instrument.
To make a push; to attack with a pointed weapon; as, a fencer thrusts at his antagonist.
To enter by pushing; to squeeze in.
To push forward; to come with force; to press on; to intrude.
The force or pressure of one part of a construction against other parts; especially (Arch.), a horizontal or diagonal outward pressure, as of an arch against its abutments, or of rafters against the wall which support them.
the forward force produced in reaction to the gases escaping rearward from a jet or rocket engine
Force applied in a specific direction.
A force that pushes or pulls an aircraft through the air; acts against the force of drag
The horizontal component of a reaction.
The force generated when air is pushed rearward by jet engines or propellers, thus pushing an aircraft forward.
the force that is generated by the spinning propeller of the airplane, and pushes the model through the air.
the force produced by an engine that pushes an aircraft along
The force that is created by the paramotor that is transferred to the pilot.
Force applied to a pipeline or drill string to propel it through the ground.
In an arch, the horizontal component of the reaction of the abutment.
The force produced by a jet engine or propeller. As defined by Newtonian physics, it is the forward reaction to the rearward movement of a jet exhaust.
Thrust is a measure of how much force an engine can push with, it is equal to the exhaust velocity x the propellant mass (mass exhausted by the rocket) every second. More properly, we speak of a propulsion system's thrust-to-weight ratio (T/W). This gives the acceleration that the engine can produce in units of Earth gravities. E.g. 2g means an acceleration of 2 x 9.8 or 19.6m/s2.
A horizontal component of a reaction.
The forward-directed force developed in a jet or rocket engine as a reaction to the rearward ejection of fuel gases
The force on an object which either pulls or pushes the object in a direction opposite the thrust direction (vector) Report this Word Added by: mkranitz
Force produced by a rocket motor by the efflux of matter at high velocity.
sudden quick strong force in one direction The driver asked for a car with more thrust so that he could win the race. She was thrust forward when the bus crashed thruster (n)
the force used in pushing; "the push of the water on the walls of the tank"; "the thrust of the jet engines"
the act of applying force to propel something; "after reaching the desired velocity the drive is cut off"
push forcefully; "He thrust his chin forward"
press or force; "Stuff money into an envelope"; "She thrust the letter into his hand"
make a thrusting forward movement
impose or thrust urgently, importunately, or inexorably; "She forced her diet fads on him"
push upward; "The front of the trains that had collided head-on thrust up into the air"
When used as a drilling parameter it is the exertion forces of a tool into the work transmitted by the Drill Unit.
The upward or insertion force applied to a roof bolt by the roof bolting machine.
The net force applied to a part in a particular direction - e.g., on the end of a valve stem.
the force that pushes an aircraft forward in flight. static thrust is the usual measure of jet engine performance, giving the thrust when the engine is at rest
pressure exerted by the vaults and roofing that tends to push the walls aside (Click on the icon for more details )
the force acting on a rocket or an airplane, produced by the action of its motor and pulling it forward. In an airplane, thrust is one of the four forces sensed by an airplane, the others being lift, drag and weight
The propulsive force developed by a driven PROPELLER or jet engine.
A nonlinear pushing force. The reason for ceiling joists and collar beams – they keep bearing walls from being pushed outward by roof structures – they hold the walls in place.
The force that propels a rocket or spacecraft measured in pounds, kilograms or Newtons. Thrust is generated by a high-speed jet of gases discharging through a nozzle.
The complete force necessary to move a load, taking into account friction, acceleration and gravity.
In a wind generator, wind forces pushing back against the rotor. Wind generator bearings must be designed to handle thrust or else they will fail. See also: Rotor, Thrust Bearing
Outward horizontal force.
A force caused by one part of a structure pushing outward against another. The thrust at the abutments of segmental arch is also called drift.
Force that propels an object, sets it into motion, or keeps it moving.
Thrust is the force upon a system (such as a rocket or jet engine) generated when that system expels or accelerates mass. The resultant thrust force is equal to and in the opposite direction of the expelled mass.
force created by the engines that pushes an aircraft through the air.
Opposite to drag. When an aircraft is cruising thrust exactly equals drag.
A forward force that pushes an object through the air
a forward force that pushes an airplane through the air
The outward force exerted by an arch or a vault that must be counterbalanced by buttresses.
The force generated by propellers or a jet engine flow that propels a plane through the air.
Horizontal, directional force that overcomes drag and powers the aircraft in the desired direction.
A force that produces motion. Thrust can result from the displacement of a fluid.
The force acting lengthwise along the axis of a shaft either towards or away from it.
1. To push yourself into a turn. 2. The speed and acceleration gained from a turn.
a reaction force in pounds.
The application of force in one direction.
Thrust is the reactive force that is exerted by a rocket, propellar, or jet engine, which propels a craft.
longitudinal or other force, i.e. the direction should be specified. Used as the term for the non rotary force (torque) exerted by a shaft, as the propulsion effect of a turbojet, or rocket engine, etc.
1. The part of the trace in a compulsory figure where the blade engages ice to produce the impetus that propels the skater around the figure. 2. The action of generating the impetus that propels the skater around the figure.
Thrust is a reaction force described quantitatively by Newton's Second and Third Laws. When a system expels or accelerates mass in one direction the accelerated mass will cause a proportional but opposite force on that system.
