IT was, we believe, SIR HENRY TIZARD who described the 193945 war as a physicist's war. This was a picturesque phrase which has always remained in the memory. So far as aircraft are concerned it remains as true of peacetime developments as it was in its wartime application when it was uttered.
THE performance of an axialflow compressor is most easily analysed in terms of the characteristics of each stage, by which is meant each pair of blade rows. Usually one row rotates on a central shaft and the other is fixed to an outer casing.
This article deals with the joint use of two branches of Physics for the solution of flow problems. These two branches arc Optics and Fluid Mechanics. The basic principles of Optics arc employed in the Fluid Mechanics Laboratory to provide insight into the flow of liquids and gases. Only...
THE Slingsby Sky is a British designed highperformance sailplane and is intended for crosscountry and competition flying. The prototype Sky first flew in the summer of 1950 and since that time the design has been put into limited production. The Sky has obtained several notable successes in...
The paper discusses the types of singular points occurring in the firstorder ordinary differential equation which describes compressible viscous flow in a channel or stream tube of varying crosssectional area. The treatment is onedimensional, viscosity being allowed for by assuming a tangential...
A PRECISION Scribing and Lofting Table, which provides an accurate mechanical means whereby layout and lofting processes can be performed to close tolerances in the minimum of time, has been developed by Short Bros. & Harland Ltd.
THE greater part of this exhibition was devoted to electronic devices, many of which play a direct or indirect part in the work of the aeronautical engineer but whicharc too numerous to be fully described here. However, a number of items of special interest will be mentioned.
This is an important book, as it is the first volume of an entirely new edition of a work sponsored and approved by the Royal Aeronautical Society. In the preface we arc told that the purpose of the Handbook of Aeronautics is to collect together in as accurate and authoritative a form as...
Under this heading are published regularly abstracts of all Reports and Memoranda of the Aeronautical Research Council, Reports and Technical Memoranda of the United States National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics and publications of other similar Research Bodies as issued
An aerofoil comprises three spanwise control sections, the sections with the smallest and greatest meanline cambers being located at the root 1 and tip 3 respectively, the camber at the third section 2 intermediate the root and tip being greater than that, 4, obtained by straight line fairing...
