Schütte-Lanz Airship Design

ByProfessor Johann Schütte

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Translated into English for the very first time, this is the full version of the 1926 German original, “Luftschiffbau Schütte-Lanz 1909 – 1925”. The book covers amongst other items: a description of a Schütte-Lanz airship; a mathematical method of calculating profitability; SL design and Stress calculations; aspects of rigid airship design; structural materials and profiles used in girders; the electrical system and bomb release mechanisms. It details the history of the company; relates its fate at the end of the war and argues the case for Prof. Schütte’s contribution to the concept as a whole. In an annex the translator has added brief potted histories of each of the Schütte-Lanz airships together with photographs where available. 427 pages B&W, illustrated throughout.
