Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the Foreword: 'John Anderson's book represents a milestone in aviation literature. For the first time aviation enthusiasts - both specialists and popular readers alike - possess an authoritative history of aerodynamic theory. Not only is this study authoritative, it is also highly readable and linked to the actual (and more familiar) story of how the airplane evolved. The book touches on all the major theorists and their contributions and, most important, the historical context in which they worked to move the science of aerodynamics forward.' Von Hardesty, Smithsonian Institution From the reviews: 'Something of the unexpected quality of this book can be inferred from its full title A History of Aerodynamics and Its Impact on Flying Machines. Pilots tend to suppose that the science of aerodynamics began empirically, somewhere around the time of Lilienthal and the Wrights, and that aerodynamics and manned flight are roughly coeval. It is therefore surprising to come upon a photograph of the Wright Flyer as late as page 242 of the 478-page volume.' Peter Garrison, Flying 'This book successfully straddles the boundary that separates a text book from a history book. It is of equal interest to both the aerodynamicist and the layman. The textual balance achieved by the author has resulted in a book that is enjoyable and educational.' Earl See, American Aviation Historical Society Newsletter

Download or read book Some Theoretical Characteristics of Trapezoidal Wings in Supersonic Flow and a Comparison of Several Wing-flap Combinations written by Robert O. Piland and published by . This book was released on 1951 with total page 26 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The theoretical lift and pitching moment due to angle of attack and pitching and the lateral force and yawing moment due to rolling of a trapezoidal wing are derived. The equations are applicable when the inboard Mach line from a leading-edge tip intersects the trailing edge and the outboard Mach line lies ahead of the side edge. When the side edges are raked in, the former condition is sufficient. A comparison based on theoretical expressions of the lift and rolling effectiveness for half-delta tip (point forward) and trailing-edge flaps on various plan forms is made.

Book excerpt: The explosive search for the truth about who killed JFK, "the final word until 2039-when government files on the case can be unlocked." (Kirkus) Will we ever know the truth about the Kennedy assassination? In Crossfire, Jim Marrs demonstrates that the facts are all there-they just need to be pieced together. Offering a wealth of evidence, including rare photos, documents, and interviews, Marrs, a veteran Texas journalist, reveals the telltale signs of the conspiracy: early government manipulation of the famous Zapruder film, falsification of evidence, the intimidation of witnesses after the assassination, the theft of Oswald's identity during the countdown to the tragedy, and much more. Meticulously researched and brimming with new information, Crossfire is sure to remain the most comprehensive account of this epochal American crime.
