A Simplified Explanation of the Spin

A Simplified Explanation of the Spin THE Spinning Panel of the Aeronautical Research Committee received an inquiry from the Society of British Aircraft Constructors as to whether it would be possible to formulate a set of simple rules for the use of aeroplane designers to guide them in making their machines safe from spinning. As a result, a report was prepared by Mr. Irving, of which the following is a summary, which represents the nearest approach that the Panel feels justified in making at the present time towards meeting the request put forward by the Industry. The Report contains a full statement of the aerodynamic and inertial properties of aeroplanes which, according to current views, are regarded as important in their effect on spinning qualities and a statement of the various combinations of properties which are today considered good or bad. Although the formulation of a complete set of rules is desirable, and may ultimately be possible, knowledge on the subject is not yet sufficiently complete to warrant the laying down of quantitative rules in a simple definite form. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

THE Spinning Panel of the Aeronautical Research Committee received an inquiry from the Society of British Aircraft Constructors as to whether it would be possible to formulate a set of simple rules for the use of aeroplane designers to guide them in making their machines safe from spinning. As a result, a report was prepared by Mr. Irving, of which the following is a summary, which represents the nearest approach that the Panel feels justified in making at the present time towards meeting the request put forward by the Industry. The Report contains a full statement of the aerodynamic and inertial properties of aeroplanes which, according to current views, are regarded as important in their effect on spinning qualities and a statement of the various combinations of properties which are today considered good or bad. Although the formulation of a complete set of rules is desirable, and may ultimately be possible, knowledge on the subject is not yet sufficiently complete to warrant the laying down of quantitative rules in a simple definite form.
