In The Modern Design of Experiments for Wind Tunnel Testing, pioneering NASA research scientist Richard DeLoach shares theoretical background, unrivalled practical experience and detailed examples of a new approach to aeronautical wind tunnel test design.
Understanding the needs of wind tunnel practitioners faced with insufficient resources for, and disappointingly unreliable results through, traditional One Factor At a Time (OFAT) testing, DeLoach has spent decades honing his take on the established Design of Experiments (DOE) approach and applying it to aeronautical testing in a wind tunnel setting. His papers on Modern Design of Experiments (MDOE) relating to experimental aeronautics have won him numerous AIAA 'Outstanding Paper' and 'Best Paper' accolades, as well as a NASA Exceptional Technology Achievement Medal in 2005.
In this ground-breaking new book, DeLoach covers the background theory needed by those unfamiliar with DOE methods and uses detailed examples from decades of work at NASA Langley to demonstrate practical realities, applications and limitations.
With massive potential for cost saving and quality improvement through DOE methods of testing driving great interest in the topic within the aerospace community, The Modern Design of Experiments for Wind Tunnel Testing is an essential reference to this novel approach from an experienced leader in the field.
Marc Kirschenbaum is one of the world’s leading origami artists, and in Creative Origami Kit, he shares an array of impressive origami projects that can be folded in just a few minutes. Kirschenbaum’s models look like complex constructions that would normally stump a beginner, but eight of these fifteen surprisingly simple creations follow the innovative “Pureland” origami system. Pioneered by English artist John Smith, Pureland origami uses only simple mountain and valley folds in order to make paper folding easier for beginners and impaired folders.
