    Does wind chill affect inanimate objects?

    We all know how wind chill affects us. But what about inanimate objects? If the temperature is 20 degrees with a 30 mph wind, will a road sign be colder than it would be if there was no wind?

    If this belongs in the Cheap Post forum, please move it there.

    temperature will not drop, nor will the road 'feel' colder. But the road will, depending on the material, shrink with the cold and rise with the heat. that is why roads are so much bumpier in the spring than they were in the fall, at least in my neck of the woods. water expands, blacktop buckles and becomes brittle and shatters in the cold.

    on a more personal note, when I step outside in the cold, the metal in my leg shrinks, though at a different rate than than the soft tissues around it. At it warms slower, as my leg warms, the metal stays colder long, retaining the chill.

    You know when you where a ring, and you step outside into the cold, it feels looser? your hand has contracted, and your ring has as well, though a different amount because it is of different material.

    Very interesting. Being a single guy, I wouldn't know anything about wearing rings, but the concept makes sense.

    That is true. Ain't nothing wrong with that. I'm just not one of them. Of course you didn't know that until now.

    BTW, can one of the mods fix my typo in the thread name? Thanks.

    All that the wind does is speeds the rate of cooling for the object that is warmer than the environment. If you place a freshly grilled, 100 steak in a 30 environment with a breeze, it will lose heat faster than if it were placed in a 30 environment with no wind. But, once the steak hits 30, it is now the same temperature as its environment, and will not cool anymore regardless of wind speed, as equilibrium has been reached.

    That sums it up as best as I know it. If I'm wrong at all, let me know.

    I'd like to. Unfortunately, it's only screening on the east and west coasts. Hopefully it will have a nationwide release. I can't wait to see it.

    Well, I finally got a chance to give John's answer to my friend who originally asked me the question. He seemed pretty pleased with it. Way to go, John!

    Re: Does wind chill affect inanimate objects?

    i always thought windchill was based on teh fact that our body tempature changes or 'adapts' to the tempature around us. and since windchill isn't an actual tempature ('its going to feel like -10') i don't think it could affect something that has no feeling.
    just my thought
