Notes on the stalling of vertical tail surfaces and on fin design by F. L Thompson( Book )

2 editions published in 1940 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A discussion is given of the important aspects of the stalling of vertical tail surfaces. The type of instability encountered is described and the possibilities of inadvertent occurrence are noted. The influence of directional stability on the behavior of an airplane when the tail stall takes place is discussed. In this connection, flight tests of a twin-engine airplane in which the vertical fin area is increased are cited. The reasons for inadequate directional stability in certain modern designs are accounted for and the properties and application of dorsal fins are discussed. In addition, the chief factors regulating the requirements for conventional fin area given, in which connection a simplified criterion for directional stability is presented
Analysis of vertical-tail loads in rolling pull-out maneuvers by Robert R Gilruth( Book )

4 editions published in 1944 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analysis is presented of the vertical-tail loads to be expected as a result of abrupt aileron action in accelerated flight, as in rolls from turns or pull-outs, for example
Requirements for satisfactory flying qualities of airplanes by Robert R Gilruth( Book )

3 editions published between 1941 and 1992 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The need for quantitative design criterions for describing those qualities of an airplane that make up satisfactory controllability, stability, and handling characteristics, has been realized for several years. Sometime ago, preliminary studies showed that adequate data for the formulation of these criterions were not available and that a large amount of preliminary work would have to be done in order to obtain the information necessary. It was apparent that flight tests of the flying qualities of numerous airplanes were required in ordered to provide a fund of quantitative data for correlation with pilot's opinions

Flight investigaton of an NACA ice-detector suitable for use as a rate-of-icing indicator by Robert R Gilruth( Book )

1 edition published in 1942 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An ice detector, which serves as a basis for a rate-of-icing indicator, has been developed and tested recently by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics. This instrument consists primarily of a wire screen and a pitot tube mounted some distance behind the screen; both are enclosed in a cylindrical shell. In operation under icing conditions, the pitot tube measures a total pressure that decreases progressively as ice accumulates on the wire screen ahead of it
