The stress distribution in triangular cantilever plates under a uniform normal load and under a tip load is investigated theoretically. Numerical solutions are presented for plates with angles of sweep from 0 deg. to 60 deg. and with tip angles of 30 deg., 45 deg., 60 deg., 75 deg. and 90 deg.
THE use of metals at temperatures in excess of 1,200 deg. F. and up to temperatures in the vicinity of their melting points is a challenging and fascinating portion of the fight to pass the heat barrier in the design and performance of aircraft and their power plants. The materials available for...
The standard diagram is described, giving the relationship between R and S for constant value of N. The line of infinite endurance is obtained, and the relationship of N and S is shown. The effects of stress concentration and of shape are studied and tabulated. The variation of KF with S1 is...
This article describes the fundamental principles of an electronic digital computer with special reference to a simple serial machine which is taken for illustration. Short descriptions are given of a mercury delay line memory, the binary number system, circuits for performing arithmetical...
When an author seeks to instruct in authorship, he cannot complain if his own works are judged by the standards he advocates. By his own standards Mr Baker has written a very good book and Mr Baker's standards are very good standards indeed. Today, when the number of people writing about...
AT Schiphol Airport the first Dutch airliner to be built since the war is nearing completion. The Royal Netherlands Aircraft Company Fokker, which was responsible for a large number of successful airliner designs in the period between the wars, has designed this latest aircraft as a medium size...
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.
A small, lightweight jet temperature indicator which, it is claimed, has a clearer scale than the older types of instrument has been designed by Smiths Aircraft Instruments Ltd. Known as the Long Scale Moving Coil Indicator, this instrument gives readings direct from four or more thermocouples,...
