AERADE Reports Archive

The Aerade Reports Archive incorporates more than ten thousand, historically significant, digitised reports from: The Aeronautical Research Council (ARC) - the principal agency in Great Britain with a major output of reports on matters aeronautical, which existed from 1909-1979, and published reports until 1980. The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) - chartered in 1915 and operational from 1917-1958. The National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958 created NASA from NACA.

  • Lock, C. N. H.; Pankhurst, R. C. (H. M. Stationery Office, 1945-10)
    The report describes a simplified 8-point strip theory method of calculating the free-air performance of a propeller up to tip Mach numbers near the velocity of sound. It is based on the assumptions of R. & M. 1674 and ...
  • Lock, C. N. H. (H. M. Stationery Office, 1934-10)
    A rapid method is described of making calculations of airscrew performance by means of charts. The first application is to ordinary strip theory calculations on the basis of the formulae of Ref. 5. Six charts are required ...
  • Lock, C. N. H.; Bateman, H.; Nixon, H. L. (H. M. Stationery Office, 1934-10)
    The main series of tests of the original family of airscrews described in R&M 829 consisted of measurements of overall thrust and torque on 5 two-bladed and four-bladed airscrews of pitch diameter ratios 0.3, 0.5, 0.7, 1.0 ...
  • Glauert, H. (H. M. Stationery Office, 1924-01)
    The present report gives a short account of a generalised type of Jankowski aerofoil which avoids the difficulty of extreme thinness near the trailing edge associated with the ordinary Jankowski aerofoils. Calculations ...
  • Lock, C. N. H. (H. M. Stationery Office, 1929-10)
    The effect of the boundaries of a wind tunnel on the flow in the neighbourhood of a symmetrical body (i.e. (a) in two dimensions, a cylinder having a plane of symmetry parallel to the axis of the tunnel : (b) in three ...
