From the pioneering glider flights of Otto Lilienthal (1891) to the complex avionics of today’s Airbus, aeronautical learn in Germany has been on the leading edge of the beginning and development of aeronautics. at the social gathering of the centennial commemoration of the Wright Brother’s first powered flight (December 1903), this English–language variation of ‘Aeronautical examine in Germany’ recounts and celebrates the substantial contributions made in Germany to the discovery and ongoing improvement of plane.

Featuring 1000s of old pictures and non-technical language, this accomplished and scholarly account will curiosity historians, engineers, and, additionally, all critical aircraft devotees. via person contributions by means of 35 aeronautical specialists, it covers in interesting element the milestones of the 1st a hundred years of aeronautical study in Germany, in the broader context of the medical, political, and business milieus.

Important contributions of German aeronautical examine to the flight sciences are, for instance, the boundary-layer concept (1904), the lifting-wing thought (1918), the Wagner net (1924), the boundary-layer balance thought (1929), the swept wing (1935) and its experimental verification (1939), the axial compressor (minimum frontal zone) for jet engines (2nd 1/2 the thirties), the transonic airfoil (1940), the world rule (1943), and the 1st software of a supercritical wing (Airbus A310, 1982).

The technological advancements led in Germany to breakthroughs in airplane layout, together with the trendy high-speed airplane (He 70, 1932), the 1st operational helicopter (Fw sixty one, 1936), rocket aircraft (He 176, 1939), jet aircraft (He 178, 1939), the Me 163 (1941), the Me 262 (1941/1942), the ejector seat (1942), the 1st volume construction jet engines Jumo 004 (1943) and BMW 003 (1944), the variable swept wing jet (Me P 1101, 1945), V/STOL airplane (VJ a hundred and one C, 1963), and regulated post-stall flight (X-31, 1990).

This richly illustrated and authoritative quantity constitutes a so much well timed and great evaluate of the an important contributions to the rules and development of aeronautics made via German scientists and engineers.
