By Ira H. Abbott, A. E. von Doenhoff

A reference for engineers and scholars, this quantity devotes greater than three hundred pages to theoretical and experimental concerns. It progresses from common fabrics to equipment utilized in the layout of NACA low-drag airfoils, and it provides strategies for utilizing wing-section facts to foretell wing features. calls for differential and critical calculus and straight forward mechanics.

Since the assumed conditions are not satisfied near the wing tips, it is obvious that section data-are not applicable to wings of low aspect ratio. In fact, an entirely different theory" applies to wings of very low aspect ratio. The ordinary threedimensional wing theories are obviously not applicable at supercritical speeds when the velocity of sound is exceeded anywhere in the field of flow. Despite these limitations, wing-section data have a wide field of application to wings of the aspect ratios and plan forms customarily used for airplanes flying at subcritical speeds.

For most purposes the first approximation to E is sufficiently accurate.
