Abstract

ALUMINIUM in various forms is used very considerably in the aeronautical industry—even so far back as the end of the war it was computed that in the year 1918 the allied governments employed about 90,000 tons of aluminium and its alloys in aero construction. And it must not be overlooked that it is largely due to the special properties of these materials that the present amazing development of aircraft has become possible.
