From the smallest gnat to the biggest plane, all issues that fly obey a similar aerodynamic ideas. within the basic technology of Flight, Henk Tennekes investigates simply how machines and creatures fly: what dimension wings they wish, how a lot power is needed for his or her trips, how they move deserts and oceans, how they take off, climb, and leap. serious about the similarities among nature and know-how, Tennekes deals an creation to flight that teaches through organization. Swans and Boeings vary in different methods, yet they stick to an analogous aerodynamic ideas. organic evolution and its technical counterpart convey intriguing parallels. What makes a few airplanes winning and others misfits? Why does the Boeing 747 undergo however the Concorde now appear a fluke? Tennekes explains the technological know-how of flight via comparisons, examples, equations, and anecdotes. the recent version of this well known publication has been completely revised and masses accelerated. Highlights of the recent fabric comprise an outline of the remarkable functionality of bar-tailed godwits (7,000 miles nonstop from Alaska to New Zealand), an research of the convergence of recent jetliners (from either Boeing and Airbus), a dialogue of the metabolization of power that includes Lance Armstrong, a unique remedy of the aerodynamics of drag and trailing vortices, and an emphasis all through on evolution, in nature and in engineering. Tennekes attracts on new proof on fowl migration, new wind-tunnel reviews, and information on new airliners. And his research of the relative potency of planes, trains, and autos is newly suitable. (On a cost-per-seat scale, a 747 is extra effective than a passenger car.)
