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 and the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) - chartered in 1915 and operational from 1917-1958.

We are in the process of moving the NACA archives from an older server to integrate with the AERADE repository. There are over 7,000 documents to import so please be patient as the work is being undertaken! If you have a specific request please use the feedback form at the bottom of the page and we will try to locate the document for you.

  • Taylor, A. F. (College of Aeronautics, )
    Comparatively little has been published on ‘heavy current’ fluidic devices yet their advantages suggest that they have a place in aircraft fluid systems. As a first brief step towards assessing their value to the aircraft ...
  • Ashill, P. R.; Osbourn, E. W. (College of Aeronautics, )
    The calibration of the flow in the channel of the Whirling Arm is described and results for pitch yaw and wind speed are presented. These indicate that the flow is quite acceptable for the type of model tests envisaged.
  • Holloway, W. G.; Kumar, P. E.; Osbourn, W. (College of Aeronautics, )
    This note covers the development of two strain-gauge balances for use on the Whirling Arm Facility of the College. The main requirements for this balance were:- (a) to withstand 700 lbs of sideload without it interfering ...

    Introduction and Summary Perhaps the most important and, at the same time, most difficult Problem in the design and development of gas turbine combustion chambers, is that of achieving a satisfactory and consistent ...
  • Gaster, M. (College of Aeronautics, )
    Flight tests on the Handley Page suction wing showed that turbulence, generated at the wing root, can propagate along the leading edge and cause the whole flow to be turbulent. The flow on the attachment line of a swept ...
