The glider

The glider

Date: January 1, 1922
Creator: Blume, W
Description: This report presents the results of testing on a glider designed and built by the College Aviation Group. The design and construction were based on the following principles: 1) the glider will be made to descend as slowly as possible; 2) rigidity and resistance were arranged to meet the conditions of varied loads; 3) construction is as simple as possible; 4) and great ease in assembling and dismounting have been sought.

Location of center of pressure of airplane wings

Location of center of pressure of airplane wings

Date: November 1, 1922
Creator: MISES
Description: Data obtained in the Gottingen Aerodynamic Laboratory give considerable detail on the resulting air force moment exerted on various wing sections at different angles of attack. The Gottingen data can serve well to test the hydrodynamic theory, which (on the assumption of uniform motion and hence of infinitely wide wings) renders it possible to compute this moment as a function of the angle of attack. The Gottigen data can well serve to test the theory and it may be noted that experiment and computation compare favorably.
