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

Featuring thousands of ancient pictures and non-technical language, this complete and scholarly account will curiosity historians, engineers, and, additionally, all critical aircraft devotees. via person contributions via 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 commercial milieus.

Important contributions of German aeronautical learn to the flight sciences are, for instance, the boundary-layer thought (1904), the lifting-wing conception (1918), the Wagner net (1924), the boundary-layer balance conception (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 world rule (1943), and the 1st program of a supercritical wing (Airbus A310, 1982).

The technological advancements led in Germany to breakthroughs in plane layout, together with the trendy high-speed airplane (He 70, 1932), the 1st operational helicopter (Fw sixty one, 1936), rocket airplane (He 176, 1939), jet aircraft (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 airplane (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 sizeable evaluate of the the most important contributions to the principles and development of aeronautics made by way of German scientists and engineers.
