In the study or VTOL aircraft, the lifting fan is usually associated with fairly low values of jet velocity, in fact with velocities such that compressibility effects are not appreciable and therefore can be neglected. Some local compressibility effects may occur, at the fan tip, for instance,...
LAST February, it was announced that eleven British firms had formed a consortium known as the British Space Development Company, with a view to investigating the commercial benefits to be obtained from a British space programme. The principal aims of this consortium were to provide a single...
FOUNDATION THE Francis Mond Professorship of Aeronautical Engineering was established at Cambridge University in 1919 and was certainly the first chair in aeronautical engineering in this country. The initial holder of this Chair was B. M. Jones now Sir B. Mclvill Jones, who had worked at the...
IT was announced recently that Thorn Electrical Industries have been awarded a twoyear contract by the Air Ministry to supply all Royal Air Force airfields, in Britain and overseas, with the R.A.E.Thorn Visual Approach Slope Indicator. This follows orders for the system from civil airports in...
ALMOST four years ago, experiments began at Hatfield to provide a simulator capable of evaluating the handling characteristics of the dc Havilland DH 121 Trident. The high subsonic cruising speed of the Trident, its threercarmounted engine configuration and the large centreofgravity travel to...
Under this heading are given each month the principal articles of aeronautical interest appearing in the current issues of the Journals of the leading Societies and Professional Institutions.
OPTIMIZATION of wing design aims at finding the best compromise between conflicting aerodynamic requirements and considerations of structure weight and stiffness. Since the profile drag of a laminarizcd aircraft is very small, the induced drag has to be correspondingly reduced for proper...
THE Eurocontrol Association has requested technical proposals for a navigation system capable of meeting provisional specification of April 5, 1961the system to be capable of operational use in 1965. The lowfrequency hyperbolic area coverage navigation system, HARCO, has been proposed by the...
The crew of a modern jet bomber normally consists of three or four members who may have two or three different jobs to do during the course of a sortie. Although there is very little space in which to move inside the aircraft, the crew often have to move a few feet from one position to another.
Under this heading arc published regularly abstracts of all Reports and Memoranda of the Aeronautical Research Council, Technical Reports and Translations of the United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration and publications of other similar Research Bodies as issued.
