Previous work suggests that the restriction of the ability to gesture can have an impact on the fluency of speech. In particular, it(More)
During the process of flying an aircraft at an altitude in excess of 20,000ft, environmental conditions can lead to ice being accumulated on the control surfaces of the aircraft with temperature extremes that are lower than -40°C being a large contributing factor. Anti-icing systems in dated aircraft predominantly apply hot engine bleed air to(More)
