VIOLENT oscillations of particular parts of an aeroplane structure have been observed and studied since early days. The theory of wing oscillations is, however, rather more modern and was initiated, it is believed, by A. G. von Baumhauer and C. Koning, who presented a paper at the International Air Congress in 1923. Since that year the subject has been much developed both abroad and in this country. The literature has grown rapidly, and a detailed notice of the papers cannot here be attempted.
