German term or phrase: Anströmgeschwindigkeit
context: automotive air conditioning systems
"Der Verflssigungsdruck wird bei luftgekhlten Kondensatoren, die im Kfz eingesetzt werden, vom Kltemittelmassenstrom und vor allem von der Temperatur and der Anstrmgeschwindigkeit der Umgebungsluft beeinflut."
Only thing I can find for that is "velocity in blower stream (Ernst)". Sounds funny - does anybody know if that's the right term in this context or if there's a better one?
TIA.

English translation:flow speed / approach speed ... of the ambient air
Explanation:
flow speed / approach speed and temperature of the ambient air

Wyhlidal lists:
Anströmrichtung – direction of flow, flow direction (Luft – air) direction of air flow, air-flow direction; and
Anströmwinkel – (Luftströmung, Karoserie- air flow/body) angle of approach, approach angle
(Wyhlidal, Kraftfahrzeugtechnisches Wörterbuch ISBN 3 923159 01 X)

Thanks to everyone for your help. My first impulse was inflow speed, too, but I'm not sure "an" really means in - in this case, so I think I'll go with just flow speed or maybe use "approach" somewhere in the term.

inflow velocity


Explanation:
Wenske's Chemical Dictionary suggests "inflow velocity" which appears to fit your context.

Good luck!

flow speed


Explanation:
See:
www.kraftfundlex.de

Schon seit fast 50 Jahren befasst sich die Firma Krapf & Lex mit der Entwicklung und Konstruktion von Mehrfachdüsen-Lüftungsgittern für Lokomotiven und Reisezugwagen. Das Entwicklungsziel war, jeweils optimale Abscheidegrade von Regenwasser, Schnee und Staub bei möglichst kleinen Druckverlusten im Gitter zu erhalten

- freier Querschnitt ca. 30 %
- günstigste Anströmgeschwindigkeit 0,5 - 1,5 m/sec.
