Contribution to the systematic investigation on Joukowsky profiles

Contribution to the systematic investigation on Joukowsky profiles

Date: April 1, 1928
Creator: Loew, Gottfried
Description: This article resulted from the need of showing, in a simple way, how the aerodynamic properties of airfoils are affected by the shape of their profiles. No general solution of this problem could be found, since the profile shapes cannot ordinarily be expressed by simple mathematical formulas. This advantage is possessed only by the Joukowsky profiles and this discussion of the problem is therefore limited to them.

A few more mechanical-flight formulas without the aid of polar diagrams

A few more mechanical-flight formulas without the aid of polar diagrams

Date: March 1, 1928
Creator: Schrenk, Martin
Description: The reliability of the assumption of a parabolic shape of the polar curve is investigated and found satisfactory for all practical purposes. It is further shown that the aerodynamically best possible or "ideal" airplane is produced on this assumption. Lastly, detailed suggestions are given on the possibilities of application of this method of calculation. It especially simplifies the design and evaluation of structural changes and the determination of the limits of technical possibilities. The present report deals only with the relations of the airfoils. The mutual action of the airfoils, engine and propeller will be treated in a subsequent report.
