WE publish this month a most important paper by MR. IRVING, giving the results of recent work done at the National Physical Laboratory, on the aerodynamic characteristics of tapered wings. This follows on the now famous lecture on the subject delivered by DR. LACHMANN before the Royal...
THE change from the parallel wings of the now obsolescent biplane to the tapered wings of the monoplane, usually fitted with flaps, raised a great number of problems, both aerodynamic and structural. Work on these has been pursued vigorously during the past few years, but the designer is still...
IN this article it is proposed to deal with the broad principles of operation of the various systems of control of aircraft electrical generators which are in common use, rather than with the detail design features and the many minor variations adopted by different manufacturers of this type of...
RUBBER used for aircraft purposes must be of high quality, and this factor must overrule anything else in the production of the necessary parts. The materials used in compounding arc the best procurable, and control tests arc operated at suitable points during the manufacturing process to ensure...
A FUNDAMENTAL method of determining the distribution of lift across the span of, e.g., a monoplane wing is that of Graphical Successive Approximation, proposed originally in 1923 by A. Fage and B. N. Jurieff independently.
PetroFlex, Superflexit and Avioflexus tubing used in civil aircraft must conform to the following D.T.D. Specifications
THE following list of contracts placed by the Air Ministry during November 1936, is extracted from the December issue of The Ministry of Labour Gazette
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
The flow of cooling air is controlled by pivoted shutters 3 which, when operated, take up the positions shown dotted, the shutters opposite the base of the cylinders moving faster than those opposite the heads. The shutters may be adjustably and resiliently coupled to chains or cables 41, 42,...
