Aeronautical Research in Germany: From Lilienthal until by Professor Dr. Ernst Heinrich Hirschel, Horst Prem, Professor

By Professor Dr. Ernst Heinrich Hirschel, Horst Prem, Professor Gero Madelung (auth.)

From the pioneering glider flights of Otto Lilienthal (1891) to the complex avionics of today’s Airbus, aeronautical examine in Germany has been on the vanguard of the start and development of aeronautics. at the get together of the centennial commemoration of the Wright Brother’s first powered flight (December 1903), this English–language variation of ‘Aeronautical study in Germany’ recounts and celebrates the huge contributions made in Germany to the discovery and ongoing improvement of airplane.

Featuring 1000s of historical images and non-technical language, this finished and scholarly account will curiosity historians, engineers, and, additionally, all severe plane devotees. via person contributions by means of 35 aeronautical specialists, it covers in attention-grabbing element the milestones of the 1st a hundred years of aeronautical examine in Germany, in the broader context of the clinical, political, and business milieus.

Important contributions of German aeronautical learn to the flight sciences are, for instance, the boundary-layer idea (1904), the lifting-wing idea (1918), the Wagner internet (1924), the boundary-layer balance idea (1929), the swept wing (1935) and its experimental verification (1939), the axial compressor (minimum frontal quarter) for jet engines (2nd half the thirties), the transonic airfoil (1940), the realm rule (1943), and the 1st software of a supercritical wing (Airbus A310, 1982).

The technological advancements led in Germany to breakthroughs in airplane layout, together with the fashionable high-speed airplane (He 70, 1932), the 1st operational helicopter (Fw sixty one, 1936), rocket aircraft (He 176, 1939), jet airplane (He 178, 1939), the Me 163 (1941), the Me 262 (1941/1942), the ejector seat (1942), the 1st volume creation jet engines Jumo 004 (1943) and BMW 003 (1944), the variable swept wing jet (Me P 1101, 1945), V/STOL plane (VJ one hundred and one C, 1963), and regulated post-stall flight (X-31, 1990).

This richly illustrated and authoritative quantity constitutes a such a lot well timed and great review of the the most important contributions to the rules and development of aeronautics made via German scientists and engineers.
