Bell X-1A Rocket Plane Pilot's Flight Operating Instructions By United States Air Force
Paperback: $14.95

An improvement over the Bell X-1 — the first plane to break the sound barrier in level flight — the X-1A was designed to reach Mach 2.0. Initial test flights commenced in January of 1953.... More > On December 12th, test pilot Charles “Chuck” Yeager set a record with the aircraft, reaching a speed of Mach 2.43 at 75,000 feet. In 1954, pilot Maj. Arthur Murray flew the plane to a new altitude record of 90,440 feet. Roughly a year later, the X-1A was severely damaged by an explosion while strapped to its B-29 mother ship. The plane was jettisoned and destroyed. Variants of the design, including the X-1B, X-1D, and X-1E continued to fly as late as 1958. Originally printed by the U.S. Air Force and NACA / NASA, this handbook provides a fascinating glimpse inside the cockpit of one of history’s great planes. Classified “Restricted”, the manual was declassified. This affordable facsimile has been slightly reformatted. Care has been taken to preserve the integrity of the text.< Less

FOKKER Design & Development to 1919 By Michael Tate
Hardcover: $36.77
Prints in 3-5 business days
The world’s first successful powered flight was made by the Wright brothers in 1903. By 1919 the performance of aeroplanes had been transformed and reliability and utility were so improved... More > that regular long-distance flights were made with no fanfare and every expectation of arrival. Along the way the form of the aeroplane had evolved so that particular types bore little relationship to the pre-war norm. Foremost amongst these radical designs were the aircraft built by the Fokker concern and it is their design and development that provides the substance of this book. The twelve chapters tell the story of how Tony Fokker developed the wooden cantilever wing, the Fokker DVII fighter biplane, the cantilever monoplane and explains Fokker aerofoil and aerodynamics development. Chapters also describe the development of Fokker wire-braced biplanes of 1916 – 1917, the background in engine and airframe technologies and the Fokker plant in Schwerin.< Less

Improved Methods for Forward and Inverse Solution of the Wave Equation for Piles By Don Warrington
Paperback: $29.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
(1 Ratings)
This dissertation discusses the development of an improved method for the static and dynamic analysis of driven piles for both forward and inverse solutions. The finite element routine developed was... More > a three dimensional model of the hammer, pile and soil system. Soil properties were aggregated to simplify data entry and analysis. The three-dimensional model allowed for more accurate modeling of the various parts of the system and phenomena. Soil layering was flexible and could either follow the grid generation or be manually input. The forward method could either model the hammer explicitly or use a given force-time history, analyzing the pile response. The inverse method used an optimization technique to determine the aggregated soil properties of a given layering scheme. In both cases the static axial capacity of the pile was estimated using the same finite element model as the dynamic method and incrementally loaded. The results were then analyzed using accepted load test interpretation criteria.< Less
