About the Authors
  • First published in 1959, this second edition of a 1952 original forms part of the Cambridge Aeronautical Series. The text provides a detailed discussion regarding control and stability in aircraft, encompassing the broader subject of aircraft dynamics. Information on newer discoveries related to the effects of compressibility of air and the deformation of aircraft structures is included. A table of American and British terms and symbols is also incorporated. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in aeronautics, aerodynamics and the history of science.
