Abstract

THE present series of articles is intended to cover in a general manner the whole subject of vibration in aircraft. The study of aircraft vibration is a specialized branch of engineering science, calling for considerable practical skill and experience in the design and use of measuring equipment, as well as the ability to carry out the mathematical analyses which render test results intelligible and lead to the successful solution of vibration problems. The leading features of all mechanical vibration problems are, however, of such a nature as to be readily understood, and the aim of this series is to describe these leading features so as to facilitate the appreciation of the broad principles governing the avoidance of unpleasant or dangerous vibrations.
