    Experience has shown that it is often necessary to retain many degrees of freedom in order to calculate critical flutter speeds reliably, but this entails much labour. Part 1 discusses the choice of a minimum set of freedoms ...
  • Duncan, W. J. (College of Aeronautics, 1946-12)
    Gates and Lyon have proposed to treat theoretically the stability and control of deformable aircraft by a method in which the distortion co-ordinates are ignored and the influence of distortion is allowed for by suitable ...
  • Duncan, W. J. (College of Aeronautics, Cranfield, 1949-04)
    Two simple means for establishing a relation between a pair of oscillation problems are briefly discussed. In the first, the displacements are connected by use of a differential operator. The set of natural frequencies is ...
  • Duncan, W. J. (College of Aeronautics, Cranfield, 1947-02)
    In Part 1 step-by-step methods are examined critically and emphasis is placed on the dependence of the error on the number n of steps used for a given range of the independent variable. The index of a process is defined ...
