The Economics of WeightSaving

The Economics of WeightSaving HOW much is lightness worth The question is one upon which many engineers have formed their own opinions. Their conclusions range in written expression from the epigrammatic observation of Major Green, of the British Armstrong Siddeley Company, that he would spend a pound to save a pound any time, to an estimate of 40 per pound offered by a wellknown American metallurgist. We are going in search of a definite answer, with arithmetic taking the place of speculation. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing
