THIS issue of AIRCRAFT ENGINEERING might without excess of exaggeration almost be described as a special number for inspectors and ground engineersfor, indeed, that elusive individual, to whom we have on occasion referred before, the practical man.
TEST bed equipment plays no small part in the comparatively high standard of efficiency of the modern aeroengine, and a lot of time has been given to the careful study of engine test requirements by equipment designers.
IN the previous section it was explained how the terminal P.D. of a shunt dynamo can be adjusted manually by means of a field regulator. Although such a device may find a place where large dynamos are concerned, conditions involving a fluctuating load necessitate some form of automatic voltage...
MR. SERBY'S article on trimming and balance tabs gives a very concise theoretical explanation of the working of trimmer and balance tabs, and explains certain characteristics which have baffled most designers.
I WISH to thank the President and the Royal Society of Italy for the honour they have conferred by inviting me to read this paper before the 5th Volta Congress as part of a discussion on high speeds in aviation. The contributions which General Crocco has made to this subject have been valuable...
THE force couples, including moments due to inertia masses, which acting at different points on a crankshaft cause an elastic distortion, as a result of which points disposed in the axial plane are subject to an angular displacement in relation to one another in the form of a phase advance and...
AS in most other forms of transport, the leadacid secondary accumulator has exercised a considerable influence on the development of aviation.
This volume is the fifth of a series on the general subject of Aerodynamic Theory, prepared under a grant from the Guggenheim Fund for the Promotion of Aeronautics. The earlier volumes were reviewed in AIRCRAFT ENGINEERING, September,. 1934, p. 249 April, 1935, p. 99 September, 1935, p. 233 and...
Under this heading are published regularly abstracts of all Reports and Memoranda of the Aeronautical Research Committee, Reports and Technical Notes of the U.S. National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, and publications of other similar research bodies as issued
In a retractable aircraft undercarriage having a plurality of points of application of operative force constrained to move at varying rates, a differential device, adapted to allow for the relative rate of movement between the points of application, is provided in the transmission means. In one...
