Description

In the present paper we shall consider a figure of revolution, so that the formulas applicable to the more simple cases as, for example, a wing or flat plate will follow from our equations as corollaries. For checking the results of our theory, we made use of the data derived from the tests of Freeman on a 1/40-scale model of the airship "Akron" conducted in the large NACA wind tunnel. In the first part we shall derive the fundamental equation for a body of revolution according to the Karman theory in its original form, and in the second part we ... continued below

National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics Collection

The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) was a U.S. federal agency founded on March 3, 1915 to undertake, promote, and institutionalize aeronautical research. On October 1, 1958 the agency was dissolved, and its assets and personnel transferred to the newly created National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
