Abacus giving the variation of the mean pressure of an aviation engine as a function of its speed of rotation

Abacus giving the variation of the mean pressure of an aviation engine as a function of its speed of rotation

Date: March 1, 1921
Creator: Margoulis, W
Description: Comparing the results of the calculations for computing the mean pressure of an aviation engine for any number of revolutions, with those of experiment, the writer, by numerous examples, shows the perfect agreement between them. This report will show that, by means of a special abacus, an engineer can instantly plot the characteristics of an engine.

Aerial navigation by dead reckoning

Aerial navigation by dead reckoning

Date: July 1, 1922
Creator: Maffert, Pierre
Description: The problem to be solved, as presented to the pilot or observer of an aircraft, is as follows: The aircraft starting from A must land at B, the only data being the speed of the airplane, the altitude and the orientation D of the course. The above data would be amply sufficient, were it not for the fact that the airplane is constantly subjected to a wind of variable direction and strength.

Aerial navigation : on the problem of guiding aircraft in a fog or by night when there is no visibility

Aerial navigation : on the problem of guiding aircraft in a fog or by night when there is no visibility

Date: January 1, 1922
Creator: Loth, William
Description: The use of magnetic fields and wire to navigate aircraft in conditions of poor visibility is presented. This field may be considered to be derived from a double lemniscate, considered in the particular case where the origin is a double point formed from the magnetic field of the slack wire, from the field produced by the return currents and from the field due to the currents induced in the conducting mass. These fields are dephased in two ways, one in the direction of the wire, the other in a direction perpendicular to it.

Aerial transportation

Aerial transportation

Date: February 1, 1922
Creator: PIERROT
Description: The origin of air traffic dates from the war. The important development of aeronautic industries and the progress made in recent years, under the impelling force of circumstances, rendered it possible, after the close of hostilities, to consider the practical utilization of this new means of economic expansion.
