Abstract

THROUGHOUT the history of the advance of aviation the development of light alloys occurs and recurs as a silver thread, lightening the pattern. From the very first the possibility of aviation has been bound up with the design of the prime mover, and the remarkable strides made during the past two decades in the production of power from a minimum of weight are largely due to the alloys of aluminium, their strength and rigidity for a given weight, their thermal properties, and their capacity for prolonged, reliable service.
