The Royal Aircraft Factory at Farnborough was unique in that it was an experimental government establishment which actually produced very few aircraft, but designed a long string of successful types that were produced by other companies. Paul Hare outlines the story of the factory and describes the development of the airplanes it designed for use in World War I.

Sopwith Aircraft (Crowood Aviation Series)

Lightning! One of the best-named aircraft of WW2, the Lockheed P-38 was also one of the few fighters in production throughout hostilities. Immediately recognizable by its twin-boom tail layout, the P-38 Lightning was one of the mainstays of the USAAF's fighter inventory. Deployed in all theaters, Lightnings excelled in most, being one of the few American fighters armed with cannon. Subject to lengthy development throughout the war, the P-38... more...

The first of a family of single-engine aircraft that would play an important part in the RAF's and Fleet Air Arm's contributions to the Second World War. The Typhoon was designed as a high-speed interceptor fighter and replacement for its forebear, the Hurricane. The Tempest was a development of the Typhoon. It was a more than capable ground-attack aircraft and defense fighter at medium altitudes. The final development of the line was the smaller and... more...

This text explains the process of the design of product electronic enclosures.  These products typically contain a printed circuit board.  The text takes the reader from the original idea for a product, through the shipment in quantity to a customer.  For the product enclosure designer, this proceeds through design layout, material selection, prototype building, testing, and ongoing design improvement. The... more...


Due to a huge concentration of electromagnetic fields and eddy currents, large power equipment and systems are prone to crushing forces, overheating, and overloading. Luckily, power failures due to disturbances like these can be predicted and/or prevented. Based on the success of internationally acclaimed computer programs, such as the authors’ own RNM-3D, Engineering Electrodynamics: Electric Machine, Transformer, and Power... more...

An in-depth review of the current scientific knowledge on food allergens testing, covering the major methodologies and techniques used to detect food allergens. Food allergens are a series of agents, mainly proteins, which cause various unpleasant and sometimes clinical symptoms in humans through consumption of foods. Perhaps surprisingly, there are no treatments against food allergies which have been found to be 100% effective. The scope... more...

In this book, the author introduces the concept of unsteady aerodynamics and its underlying principles. He provides the readers with a comprehensive review of the fundamental physics of free and forced unsteadiness, the terminology and basic equations of aerodynamics ranging from incompressible flow to hypersonics. The book also covers modern topics related to the developments made in recent years, especially in relation to wing flapping... more...
