The velocity of the air at the blower outlet shall be within the following limits (as a function of roll speed):
|Actual roll speed||Allowable cooling air speed|
|0 km/h to 5 km/h||0 km/h to 10 km/h.|
|5 km/h to 10 km/h||0 km/h to roll speed + 5 km/h.|
|10 km/h to 50 km/h||Roll speed ±5 km/h.|
|50 km/h to 70 km/h||Roll speed ±10 pct.|
