THE causes of the crashes of the two Comets are not yet subjects for comment since, being at present under investigation by the British Court of Inquiry, they must be treated as sub judice.
When an aircraft changes its speed or altitude, large thermal strains may be set up in the wing structure sometimes these are of sufficient magnitude for the accompanying stresses to exceed the clastic limit of the material. During its life the aircraft may suffer a large number of cycles of...
The inverse problem of finding the shockwave angle when a supersonic stream passes round a bend of 180i involves a double interpolation from tables prepared for the direct problem. This may be avoided by reducing the problem to the solution of a cubic equation. Most of the phenomena associated...
This paper continues the theme of the opening Part I by analysing a number of problems designed to illustrate some particular aspects of the general theory. Three are concerned with thermal stresses and the last applies inter alia the theorems on maxima and minima to find lower and upper bounds...
The advent of jet and rocket propulsion in our present age has brought the problems of combustion right into the foreground. While much is known, still more theoretical and experimental research is necessary to extend our knowledge of combustion phenomena in combustion chambers and rockets. This...
PROMINENT members of the aircraft industry were among more than 300 people present at the Fulmer Research Institute, on November 2, when a new engineering laboratory was opened by H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh.
Discusses some of the stability, control and operational problems arising in the design of supersonic aircraft. The changes in the flow patterns about an aerofoil as a function of Mach number are reviewed and typical patterns are given for M 085, 095, 105 and 135. This forms a basis for...
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 aircraft structural member such as a wing or fuselage is provided with a series of suction ducts formed in transversely disposed structural elements and embodying porous portions through which suction of the boundary layer is effected. The skin consists of outer and inner sheets 2, 13...
Propulsive thrust generating apparatus having forward propulsive thrust reacting surfaces comprising a duct means for introducing into said duct a plurality of fluids which, when mixed, form a combustible mixture means including a deflector forming a mixing zone in which said fluids are formed...
