The Library Shelf

The Library Shelf This is an important book, as it is the first volume of an entirely new edition of a work sponsored and approved by the Royal Aeronautical Society. In the preface we arc told that the purpose of the Handbook of Aeronautics is to collect together in as accurate and authoritative a form as possible, information which will be of everyday use to the designer and constructor of aircraft, and the aeronautical engineer. Mr George Dowty, the Society's President, says in his foreword that in order for a handbook of this nature to be useful it must be accurate and comprehensive. In the latter connexion it must be judged in conjunction with the other members of the series and as far as the design side is concerned we shall eagerly await the promised companion on Component Design. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

This is an important book, as it is the first volume of an entirely new edition of a work sponsored and approved by the Royal Aeronautical Society. In the preface we arc told that the purpose of the Handbook of Aeronautics is to collect together in as accurate and authoritative a form as possible, information which will be of everyday use to the designer and constructor of aircraft, and the aeronautical engineer. Mr George Dowty, the Society's President, says in his foreword that in order for a handbook of this nature to be useful it must be accurate and comprehensive. In the latter connexion it must be judged in conjunction with the other members of the series and as far as the design side is concerned we shall eagerly await the promised companion on Component Design.
