TOO late for a report to be included in this issue the Royal Aeronautical Society held a Section Lecture, or rather group of lectures, on Aircraft Design Philosophy. This was in fact primarily concerned with the fundamentals of structural design. A paper by MR R. H. SANDIFER examined the ways in...
IN the first of these articles it was pointed out that normal supersonic flow can be described theoretically, to a first approximation, by the linearized equation of motion. This has the form of the wave equation and governs first order disturbances to fields of uniform flow for example, flow...
In this paper the isothermal flow of perfect gases is discussed following the gas dynamic approach of applying the continuity, momentum and energy equations. Flow functions for isothermal, reversible, onedimensional flow are derived and these are represented graphically. Isothermal flow in...
A SKELETAL structure is defined as one which can be ideally represented by linear onedimensional members appropriately connected at point nodes. The members are not necessarily straight or in one plane. The term structure will be used to denote a skeletal structure.
AS was announced in the June 1955 issue of Aircraft Engineering, this conference was held in Boston, Massachusetts in June, and again in London in October.
FATIGUE of aircraft structures has recently become an important subject, particularly during the last two years, and many research organizations and aircraft manufacturers are now engaged in investigations into the problems of fatigue. Three international events dealing comprehensively with most...
FOLLOWING the talk given by Mr William C. Hitt of the Douglas Aircraft Company last June, which was reported in Aircraft Engineering for July, the S.L.A.E. organized a meeting at which the subject could be further discussed. Mr R. A. Fry was in the chair, and the first paper, by Mr William C....
This book, sponsored by the Taft Fund of the University of Cincinnati, is not a textbook of Hydrodynamics in the accepted sense it is not a book that a university student would use for examination purposes.
AN allmagnesium aircraft has been built in the United States by East Coast Aeronautics Inc. under contract to the Air Force Air Development Center. It is the latest in a series of projects connected with the use of magnesium for aircraft primary structures. J. P. Donald Garges, vicepresident of...
IN the investigation of stability problems in physical science it is essential that stability criteria be available to ensure that the characteristic equation, which is usually an algebraic polynomial equation, is such that the roots, if real, are negative and, if complex, have their real parts...
