Abstract:

The publication contains the lecture notes prepared for the AGARD-VKI Lecture Series on The Aerodynamics of VSTOL, Aircraft which took place at the von Karman Institute, Rhode-Saint Genese, Belgium, from May 13 to 17, 1968. The lecture series was designed to provide an up-to-date account of special aerodynamic problems and aerodynamic requirements for VSTOL aircraft, including a discussion of the present state of knowledge, novel aerodynamic advances, important areas for research and development, experimental and theoretical treatments as well as immediate and long-term VSTOL aircraft prospects. It was intended for aeronautical engineers with a need to acquire a more adequate background on VSTOL aerodyanmics.
