THERE can be few instances of a monthly magazine running a serial, however popular, over twentytwo issues. Even the earlier stories of Charles Dickens, long though they are by comparison with many modern novels, can hardly have taken so long as nearly two years to reach their finale in the pages...
SAND is very harmful to engines. During recent tests conducted by me in the North African Deserts, as much as half a pound of sand has been collected in ten minutes in each air intake of a Mosquito aircraft taxying, alone, downwind on a desert airfield. Had the Mosquito been following another...
THIS paper deals with semi shearresistant panels incomplete tension fields subjected to pure shearas well as combined shear and tension loads. It establishes the stresses in the midplane of the sheet and the loads acting on panel joints.
THE bending stresses in thin shells can often be neglected. If the loading on the shell is, for example, due to normal pressure or to gravity forces, the stresses due to strain in the middle surface of the shell usually outweigh in importance the stresses due to bending, which are small because...
DEAR SIR, We were pleased to notice the reference to Air Refuelling in the article entitled Assisted Takeoff in Relation to Transport Aeroplanes, by L. L. Th. Huls, v.i. in your December, 1946 issue, and would like to amplify his comments in certain respects.
DOUGLAS and Carmichael REF. 1 have suggested formulae relating the compressive strength at failure of short circular tubes with their ultimate tensile strength and thicknessradius ratio. Robertson REF. 2 has tested Southwell's theoretical formula for thinwalled circular tubes. Further tests on...
AXIAL flow fans were originally developed from aircraft airscrews and therefore can be claimed as children of aeronautical science. Their use has been confined in aeronautics to wind tunnels and radial engine cooling until the advent of pressurized cabins. In this case ventilation requirements...
Under this heading are published regularly abstracts of all Reports and Memoranda of the Aeronautical Research Council, Reports and Technical Notes of the United States National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics and publications of other similar Research Bodies as issued.
AS aircraft engines have increased in size and power in recent years, the instruments associated with them have multiplied while a host of gadgets have found their place in the installation systems. The latter include fuel and oilpressure warning lights, relief and bypass valves incorporated in...
