Transtability flutter of supersonic aircraft panels
by
Rufus Isaacs(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1949 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A beam is clamped at the ends. The ends have been forced toward one another before clamping so that the beam is buckled slightly. One face of the beam is exposed to a supersonic air stream flowing parallel to the beam whose effect is a pressure negatively proportional to the inclination of the beam. The practical prototype of this model which was used to study transtability flutter is a panel in the structure of a supersonic aircraft

THE PROBLEM OF AIMING AND EVASION
(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1955 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The general problem of a marksman versus a mobile target, with a time lag in the gunner's information as to the target's position, is mathematically analyzed. Formulated in terms of game theory, the desiderata are: How should the target best maneuver to confound prediction of his position. How and when should the marksman make this prediction. What hit probability is to be expected when both participants behave optimally. The emphasis is on the marksman. He has no optimal strategy, but does have an ideal strategy with the property that every near optimal strategy is close to it. He also has a class of passive epsilonstrategies such that if and only if he obeys their dictates will he either come within epsilon of the best hit probability or else always remain in a position where it is possible to do so.
