Flight Test Analysis of the Forces and Moments Imparted on a B737-100 Airplane During Wake Vortex Encounters: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Christopher L. Roberts
This book offers a comprehensive introduction to Subdivision Surface Modeling Technology focusing not only on fundamental theories but also on practical applications. It furthers readers understanding of the contacts between spline surfaces and subdivision surfaces, enabling them to master the Subdivision Surface Modeling Technology for analyzing subdivision surfaces. Subdivision surface modeling is a popular technology in the field of computer aided design (CAD) and computer graphics (CG) thanks to its ability to model meshes of any topology. The book also discusses some typical Subdivision Surface Modeling Technologies, such as interpolation, fitting, fairing, intersection, as well as trimming and interactive editing. It is a valuable tool, enabling readers to grasp the main technologies of subdivision surface modeling and use them in software development, which in turn leads to a better understanding of CAD/CG software operations. Prof. Liao Wenhe is professor and Vice President of Nanjing University of Science and Technology, Nanjing, China. He has published 2 books and over 150 peer-reviewed journal/conference papers. He is also a member of associations and is Editor-in-Chief of CAD/CAM and Digital Manufacturing Industry. His main areas of research include airplane three-dimensional (3D) digital design, digital assembly, high-precision digital medical equipment and mini/micro-satellite techniques. Prof. Hao Liu is Associate Professor at Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. His main areas of research and consulting expertise include mathematics and image and graphic processing. He was visiting scholar at the Department of Computer Information and Science Engineering, University of Florida from Jan. 2015 to Jan. 2016. He has been involved in a number of research collaborations and has written numerous articles. Prof. Tao Li is a lecturer at Suzhou University of Science & Technology, China. His research focuses on subdivision surface modeling, and he has received the Teaching and Research Award Program for Outstanding Young Teachers in Higher Education Institutions of MOE, China.
One of the most amazing feats of modern life is the frequency with which airplanes safely take off and land: about 40,000 times a day in the United States alone. Commercial aviation is by far the safest mode of transportation and is becoming safer all the time. But on the exceedingly rare occasion that a plane does crash, comprehensive accident analysis, thorough investigation, and implementation of remedial actions significantly reduces the probability of an already remote event ever recurring. Plane Crash, an unprecedented collaboration between mechanical engineering professor George Bibel and airline Captain Robert Hedges, shares the riveting stories of both high-profile and lesser-known airplane accidents. Drawing on accident reports, eyewitness accounts, and simple diagrams to explain what went wrong in the plane and in the cockpit, Hedges provides invaluable insight into aviation human factors, while Bibel analyzes mechanical failures. No prior scientific knowledge is needed to understand the principles and procedures this book describes, only an interest in the view from what Captain Hedges describes as ´´the best seat in the house.´´ Organized around the phases of flight¿takeoff, climb, cruise, approach, and landing¿this book is a captivating look at some of the most dramatic plane crashes of the modern age, including Asiana Airlines 214, Air France 447, and Malaysia Airlines 370. If you have ever wondered what goes through a pilot´s mind as a flight takes a turn for the dangerous, what impact turbulence actually has on flight safety, or even just how the wonders of aeronautics work to keep passengers safe day in and out, Plane Crash will both fascinate and educate.
This moment-by-moment account of a major airplane crash on a beautiful and treacherous mountainside puts the reader at the pilot´s side, describing the flight, its catastrophic ending, and the aftermath. At 7:05 a.m. on February 19, 1955, TWA Flight 260 took off from the Albuquerque airport for a short flight to Santa Fe. To avoid flying over the Sandia Mountains, the plane´s approved air route was a dogleg running north-northwest from Albuquerque, then east-northeast into Santa Fe. But at 7:08 a.m. Flight 260 was headed directly toward Sandia Ridge, almost entirely obscured by storm clouds. A local resident who saw Flight 260 overhead observed that if the plane was eastbound, it was too low; if it was northbound, it was off course. At 7:12 a.m. the plane´s terrain-warning bell sounded its alarm. Both pilots saw the sheer west face of the Sandias just beyond the right wingtip--an appalling shock considering they should have been ten miles further west. Reacting instantly, they rolled the plane steeply to the left, pulled its nose up, and started to level the wings. It was their final act. Hidden by the storm, another cliffside lay directly ahead. When they struck it, they were still in a left bank, nose high. Charles Williams was one of the first men on the scene of this horrific crash. His unraveling of TWA Flight 260´s final flight is a tale of days, minutes, and seconds spread out over the span of half a century. His book resolves some of the controversies surrounding the crash, including the Civil Aeronautics Board´s over-swift determination that the pilots were at fault. 1. Language: English.
