Göttinger Monograph N: German Research and Development on Rotary-Wing Aircraft (1939-1945)

van der Wall, Berend G. (2015) Göttinger Monograph N: German Research and Development on Rotary-Wing Aircraft (1939-1945). Library of Flight. AIAA American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. ISBN 978-1-62410-272-1.

This slim historical gem, nearly lost in the aftermath of World War II, documents an important period in rotary-wing technology development in Germany during the prewar and war period. In the German work of the period, one can see the struggle for physical understanding of helicopter dynamical theory and the development of an adequate mathematics to tie this theory together. What is astonishing is that aeronautical engineering of that day had as strong a command of helicopter dynamics as it did - without the modern finite-element and computer-aided numerical methods required for a contemporary understanding of the challenges. Because of its ahead-of-its time sophistication and the influence of the German work on the field, Göttinger Monograph N: German Research and Development on Rotary-Wing Aircraft (1939-1945) earns its position on the shelf of the Library of Flight.
