A READER in America has written a most encouraging letter taking us to task for having last November written an apology for the delays experienced in the arrival of copies of AIRCRAFT ENGINEERING. His theme was that there was no need for us to do so, since everyone, even on the other side of the...
IN a recent issue of AIRCRAFT ENGINEERING there appeared a very brief description, and some illustrations of the Junkers airscrew which aroused considerable interest. Since then we have had the opportunity, through the courtesy of Rotol Airscrews Limited, of inspecting an example of this unit.
THE tendency towards increased engine performance combined with the lowest possible constructional weight has resulted in the stresses on pistons being carried to the extreme limits of fatigue strength. Further, it has always been the aim to raise the limits of fatigue strength as far as...
This article is intended, firstly, as a means to a quick determination of the maximum stresses in such a channel, and secondly, to give the reader a clearer insight into the behaviour of an open section generally.
A SIMPLIFIED presentation of basic gust load factor theories, designed to supply information requested frequently by pilots, has been prepared by the Aircraft Airworthiness Section of the V.G. Civil Aeronautics Authority.
In Report No. 103 of the Aeronautical Research Institute, will be found the results of experiments in the electrical method of measuring small vibrations with the aid of a triode valve, together with its applications to the measurement of vibrations of airscrew blades.
A GREAT deal of development has already been made in the technique of drawing iron, steel, brass, copper and aluminium, whereas the drawing of light alloysparticularly those, like duralumin, of high strength values is still in need of further development.

THE first electrical welding tests by the Arado firm were carried out at Warnemiinde in the year 1933 with a Rudolf welding machine. These tests were suggested by the welding of seaplane float frames by the Heinkcl firm, under the direction of Koppenhfer, with machines of the same type. The...
IN metal aeroplane construction the advantages of spot welding compared with riveting are very marked production costs are reduced, components are lighter, and the skin can bo made smoother. In the production of aeroplanes of the Junkers Works at Dessau these advantages were recognized at an...
