Aeronautical Research in Germany: From Lilienthal until by Professor Dr. Ernst Heinrich Hirschel, Horst Prem, Professor

By Professor Dr. Ernst Heinrich Hirschel, Horst Prem, Professor Gero Madelung (auth.)

From the pioneering glider flights of Otto Lilienthal (1891) to the complicated avionics of today’s Airbus, aeronautical study in Germany has been on the vanguard of the beginning and development of aeronautics. at the social gathering of the centennial commemoration of the Wright Brother’s first powered flight (December 1903), this English–language version of ‘Aeronautical examine in Germany’ recounts and celebrates the enormous contributions made in Germany to the discovery and ongoing improvement of plane.

Featuring 1000's of historical photographs and non-technical language, this finished and scholarly account will curiosity historians, engineers, and, additionally, all severe plane devotees. via person contributions through 35 aeronautical specialists, it covers in interesting aspect the milestones of the 1st a hundred years of aeronautical learn in Germany, in the broader context of the medical, political, and commercial milieus.

Important contributions of German aeronautical examine to the flight sciences are, for instance, the boundary-layer concept (1904), the lifting-wing idea (1918), the Wagner net (1924), the boundary-layer balance conception (1929), the swept wing (1935) and its experimental verification (1939), the axial compressor (minimum frontal quarter) for jet engines (2nd half the thirties), the transonic airfoil (1940), the world rule (1943), and the 1st program of a supercritical wing (Airbus A310, 1982).

The technological advancements led in Germany to breakthroughs in airplane layout, together with the trendy high-speed plane (He 70, 1932), the 1st operational helicopter (Fw sixty one, 1936), rocket aircraft (He 176, 1939), jet airplane (He 178, 1939), the Me 163 (1941), the Me 262 (1941/1942), the ejector seat (1942), the 1st volume creation jet engines Jumo 004 (1943) and BMW 003 (1944), the variable swept wing jet (Me P 1101, 1945), V/STOL airplane (VJ one hundred and one C, 1963), and regulated post-stall flight (X-31, 1990).

This richly illustrated and authoritative quantity constitutes a such a lot well timed and monstrous assessment of the an important contributions to the principles and development of aeronautics made through German scientists and engineers.

Learning from strangers: the art and method of qualitative interview studies

Studying From Strangers is the definitive paintings on qualitative examine interviewing. It attracts on Robert Weiss's thirty years of expertise in interviewing and instructing others tips to do it. the simplest interviews, says Weiss, depend upon growing cooperation -- an open and trusting alliance among interviewer and respondent, devoted to particular and sincere bills of either inner and exterior occasions.
