Abbott, Ira H. & Albert E. von Doenhoff  
Theory of Wing Sections including a Summary of Airfoil Data

Publisher: New York: Dover Publications, Inc..
Reprint. Trade Paperback. 21 X 14 cm. VG+/No dj. No date, but has SBN on copyright page and ISBN on back cover, so no earlier than 3rd Dover printing. Sewn in mostly blue covers with white titles on spine, x, 693 pp, hundreds of figures, charts, & tables, bibliography, index. Slight shelf wear, a few pages dog-eared. According to the preface, "The new (1959) edition of this book originally published in 1949 results from the continuing demand for a concise compilation of the subsonic aerodynamic characteristics of modern NACA wing sections together with a description of their geometry and associated theory." Some errors in the 1949 edition were corrected, otherwise the text is the same. Contents: wing-section cahracteristics; simple two-dimensional flows; theory of finite-thickness & thin wing sections; effects of viscosity; families of wing sections; experimental characteristics of wing sections; high-lift devices; effects of compressibility at subsonic speeds. Appendices: basic thickness forms; mean lines; airfoil ordinates; aerodynamic characteristics of wing sections. This book is very heavy on data throughout, and especially in the appendices which constitute over half of the book. Shipping weight 3 lbs. (International 2 lbs., 4 oz.)

Appr.: | AUD 24.19 CAD 24.46 EUR 16.79 GBP 13.43 JPY 2,250.00 MXN 281.25 ZAR 241.94

Publisher: Superintendent of Documents, 1951 Washington, DC.
Book. Book condition: Good. Trade paperback 4to - over 9 - 12" tall "This bulletin has been prepared for use in the design of both military and commercial aircraft, and contains material which is acceptable to the U.S. Air Force, Navy BGureau of Aeronautics, and the Civil Aeronautics Administration. It should, of course, be understood that methods and procedures other than those outlined herein are also acceptable, provided they are properly substantiated and approved by the appropriate agency. The applicability and interpretation of the provisions of this bulletin as contract or certification requirements will in each case be defined by the procuring or certificating agency. The technical material in this bulletin..pertains to three related phases of the structural design of wood aircraft. Chapter 2 presents information on the strength and elastic properties of structural elements constructed of wood and plywood..Chapter 3 contains suggested methods of structural analysis for the design of various aircraft components. Although these methods are in many cases the same as those used for metal structures, special considerations have been introduced which take into account the orthotropic properties of wood. Chapter 4 presents recommendations on the detail structural design of wood aircraft and contains some examples of how various manufacturers have treated the solution of specific detail design problems..."
