Flying Versus Transportation

Efficiency and economy are being sacrificed today on the high altar of Speed. Captain Courtney’s long association with transport problems makes his analysis particularly pertinent at this time when operators are seeking every possible means to stem the tide of red ink.


Aeronautic Progress and the N.A.C.A.

For the first time in aerodynamic research history, tests of a full scale airplane are to be made in a wind tunnel sufficiently large for this purpose. This tunnel, which is by far the largest in the world, has just been completed at Langley Field and, together with a recently constructed towing basin, also of gigantic proportions, was dedicated during the recent N.A.C.A. Conference.

Well Done!

THE maneuvers went through according to schedule. The Air Force assembled in Dayton from the four corners of the country. It flew to Chicago, the Atlantic Coast, to Washington, and back to its several stations. It did all that in almost exact accordance with the schedule planned long in advance.

What’s in Aviation ... and Why

THE aviation industry has undergone great changes in the last year, and we have modified our own form and content to keep pace. Careful analysis, backed by fifteen years of experience in aeronautical publishing, has led us to a succession of innovations.

Strength of Continuous Beams

A METHOD OF CALCULATING THE ULTIMATE STRENGTH OF CONTINUOUS BEAMS, by J. A. Newlin and Geo. W. Tracer; N.A.C.A. Technical Report No. 347. IN employing the usual theory of three moments to calculate maximum load conditions, it is assumed that the relation of moments does not change when the elastic limit of the material is passed.
