The Effect of Cumulonimbus to the Flight of Air Asia QZ

Outline

The Effect of Cumulonimbus to the Flight of Air Asia QZ

Intro
Cumulonimbus is a convective
cloud, it grows vertically.
Cumulonimbus involves in thunder
storm and others extreme weather.
Cumulonimbus is the one that
produces thunder storm, lighting,
and hail, as well as very heavy rain.

Objectives
Any extreme weather that effected by
Cumulonimbus can causes any accident to the
flight. One of the accident had just happened
to Air Asia QZ 8501 on December 28th 2014.
The plane lost contact with Air Traffic Control
42 minutes after taking off and 162 passengers
and cabin crew were missing.
Here, we will discuss about the elements of
Cumulonimbus i.e. turbulence, icing, and
lightning that occur because the mature stage
of such Cumulonimbus that are suspected as
the
cause of
the
accident.

Method
The method of collecting data is
literary looking from the internet.

Result and discussion


1.Turbulence is vertical movement
within a Cumulonimbus which the
velocity can be as much as 50
knots. The interaction between
strong updrafts and strong
downdrafts causes wind shear
and severe turbulence within the
cloud.

TURBULENCE

2. Icing happens if cumulonimbus


grow higher than freezing level
so water droplets over the
freezing level change to ice
droplets. Icing is dangerous for
flight because it disturbs the
aerodynamic balance of plane.
For example, if the ices get into
the vane, the vane will be
stucked or stop turning.

ICING

Vertical temp profile <30.000 feet at troposphere


Types of icing generally associated with temperature
(ranges)

3. Lightning
The visible discharge ofelectricitythat
occurs when a region of
acloudacquires an excess electrical
cloud, either positive or negative, that
is sufficient to break down
theresistanceof air is called lightning.
During a thunderstorm, lightning can
occur within thecloud, between
clouds, between the cloud and the air,
or between the cloud and the ground.

Conclusion
Cumulonimbus contains extreme
weather phenomenon such as
turbulence, icing, and lightning.
All of them are dangerous for
flight. So, the pilot should avoid
cumulonimbus in any route
flights.
