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 leading edge of the start and development of aeronautics. at the get together of the centennial commemoration of the Wright Brother’s first powered flight (December 1903), this English–language version of ‘Aeronautical learn in Germany’ recounts and celebrates the huge contributions made in Germany to the discovery and ongoing improvement of airplane.

Featuring hundreds and hundreds of old images and non-technical language, this entire and scholarly account will curiosity historians, engineers, and, additionally, all critical plane devotees. via person contributions through 35 aeronautical specialists, it covers in attention-grabbing aspect the milestones of the 1st a hundred years of aeronautical examine in Germany, in the broader context of the medical, political, and commercial milieus.

Important contributions of German aeronautical examine to the flight sciences are, for instance, the boundary-layer idea (1904), the lifting-wing idea (1918), the Wagner internet (1924), the boundary-layer balance concept (1929), the swept wing (1935) and its experimental verification (1939), the axial compressor (minimum frontal zone) for jet engines (2nd half the thirties), the transonic airfoil (1940), the realm 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 fashionable high-speed plane (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 plane (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 colossal review of the the most important contributions to the principles and development of aeronautics made via German scientists and engineers.
