THE report provided by PROFESSOR KLEMIN of the papers read at the annual meeting of the Institute of the Aeronautical Sciences is of particular interest on account of the fact that it contains an extended summary of one by PROFESSOR YOUNGER on Structural and Mechanical Problems Involved in...
SINCE its inception, but a few years ago, the Institute of the Aeronautical Sciences has grown remarkably in the size and distinction of its membership, and the technical value of the papers appearing in its journal is now thoroughly well established. Thanks in a large measure to the organizing...
THE connexion is not at first sight apparent between a small, dark, sawdusty, no doubt dirty and inconvenient coffeehouse in the City of London, in the days of William and Mary, and a great modern office building, airy, spacious, centrally heated, electrically lighted, fitted with the most...
THOUGH resonance tests are now becoming familiar to most aeronautical engineers, it is perhaps desirable at the outset to indicate their general nature. They are vibration tests carried out on an aeroplane with the immediate object of determining the natural frequencies and modes of its parts,...
THE usual cases that occur in torsional vibration calculations are of the type shown in Fig. 1.
ONE of the activities of the Deutsche Versuchsanstalt fr Lufthfahrt has, naturally, been directed to the development of special instruments adapted for the peculiar needs of the experimental work carried out at Adlershof. Arrangements have recently been made whereby a wide range of these...
SIR,I have three problems all more or less related and two closely allied. I hope that by airing them in your columns I may obtain some reliable information. I am not very interested in the theory, but would like any formula backed up, if possible, with test data.
At all times engineers have needed to know something of the properties of materials, but of late for a reason that is new. The materials of the nineteenth century were lew and traditional brick and stone, timber, wrought and cast iron, copper and its alloys with zinc and tin, all these had been...
BEARING, as it does, the unmistakable stamp of Dornier design, this flying boat makes a very interesting comparison with their earlier machinesnotably the Wal and the Do. 18. In contradistinction to the present general trend in Great Britain and the U.S.A., Herr Dornier has clung to the design...
ALTHOUGH this aeroplane is utterly unlike the general trend of Fokker aerodynamic design, it is typical as regards structural practice. It is also not entirely irrelevant to comment on the use of the term battle planethis being the producer's own description of the machinea term which was used...
