MOST of the structural analysis problems that have resulted from the use of thinwalled construction seem to fall into two general classes Stress distribution and buckling. Even these classes cannot be entirely separated, as the stress distribution can be greatly affected by buckling phenomena. A...
IN the recent lecture on U.S. Methods of Aircraft Production given by Mr. T. P. Wright before the Royal Aeronautical Society the methods shown for cutting duralumin plates will be of interest to many people. Perhaps a brief description of a simple arrangement for cutting small blanks, which has...
Under this heading are published regularly abstracts of all Reports and Memoranda of the Aeronautical Research Committee, Reports and Technical Notes of the U.S. National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics and publications of other similar research bodies as issued
WHEN designing an airscrew one has to choose from a family, tested in the wind tunnel, the right diameter and blade angle.
An automatic sizing internal grinder is too well known to production engineers to need any introduction.
PROBLEMS which confront Aviation today have changed so radically and to such a degree in the last few months that, in comparison with methods employed until recently, aeroplane production in practically all branches is undergoing fundamental changes.
ALTHOUGH this year's show was not as brilliant or as representative as it might have been, there was still a great deal of interest and much worth noting.
THE materials commonly employed in the fabrication of aircraft structures are confined for the main part to steels of low carbon content i.e., mild steel, manganese steels of a medium carbon and chromemolybdenum steels. The content of carbon steels that are weldable cannot be exactly laid down,...
Cases have been reported where the elevator bias cable of B.A. Swallow II aeroplanes has caught on the rudder pedal securing pin when the bias level is in the rearmost position. This has the effect of making the rudder and elevators stiff to operate, and may lead to an accident.
IT has long been conceded that production and research should go hand in hand in the Aircraft Industry, but the precept has often differed lamentably from practice. However, most large firms have in recent years been gradually extending their ordinary works testing equipment, both mechanical and...
