TOO late for a report to be included in this issue the Royal Aeronautical Society held a Section Lecture, or rather group of lectures, on Aircraft Design Philosophy. This was in fact primarily concerned with the fundamentals of structural design. A paper by MR R. H. SANDIFER examined the ways in which loads are applied to an aircraft. Safety factors were the subject of a paper by MR J. K. WILLIAMS, and MR H. GIDDINGS and DR P. B. WALKER dealt respectively with Fatigue, and Structural Strength Testing.
