Development of Aircraft Propellers

BEFORE the first successful flight of the Wright brothers in 1903, various mathematicians speculated on the proposition that an air propeller was analogous to marine propellers. There were two schools of thought at that time, one of which claimed that if proper corrections were made for the difference of density between air and water that marine practice in propeller design would apply equally well to air propellers; the other school of thought maintained that air being compressible, and having less density, and being subject to thermodynamic changes made it necessary that an entirely new theory of propeller design be produced.

The Control of the Materials

IN several earlier articles, we have considered methods for controlling production by planning the labor. Obviously, there will be no use in advance planning of labor unless it is sure that the material will be at hand when wanted for that labor to work on.
