IN the three major fields of aeronautical study—aerodynamic, aeroelastic and structural—the technician is often concerned with large numbers of linear simultaneous equations. The successful practical solution of these equations depends upon two things: that the work involved is within the limits of the time and labour available; and that the calculation is carried out to a sufficient number of significant figures, such that the final answers are to the desired order of accuracy.
