WE are glad to have the opportunity of publishing DR. PUGSLEY'S article on structural research. Things have been moving so rapidly in aviation of late and changes in design and in the materials used in the construction of aeroplanes taking place so quickly that designers have had to deal with...
AERONAUTICAL research has until recently been conducted by men trained in other and varied branches of science and engineering. Mathematicians and physicists, civil and mechanical engineers, have all taken part from time to time, and their work has naturally borne the imprint of their several...
THE usual formul for deflexions and bending moments in curved beams, as given in standard textbooks e.g., Refs. 1 and 2, are not easily applied to the relatively flimsy closed rings used as stiffeners in contempory aircraft design. Two kinds of difficulty arise one of computation, the other of...
THE general use of monocoque structures for the wings and fuselages of modern aeroplanes has undoubtedly given rise to a crop of problems in stress distribution which are still far from a complete solution. Theoretical solutions are nearly always confined to simplified structures that are seldom...
THE annual production of nickel is small in comparison with that of the common industrial metals, iron and steel, copper, lead, zinc and aluminium, but it is a metal of first class engineering importance because it is mainly used in the form of relatively small additions which have a pronounced...
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
As a result of the election held in March the Council of the Royal Aeronautical Society for the year 19391940 is constituted as follows
THE rapid growth and development of the aircraft industry has necessitated prompt decision and action in handling the many problems in connexion with the erection and equipment of aerodrome buildings, hangars, workshops and factories. In the urgency of providing the industry with all its varied...
THE increase of the specific power of aeroengines in the last few years has been obtained in three ways, namely by increasing the engine speed and, more particularly, by raising the compression ratio and by adopting supercharging.
THE two previous articles in this series have dealt respectively with a metal fabriccovered aeroplane and a metal stressedskin machine, so that the Oxford, as an example of modern woodworking practice, forms a subject for direct comparison of the three main materials available. It will be...
