    Abstract: Are investigated a trajectory of new type in distant, space flights unlike usual trajectories of direct flight to heavenly object (Moon) it is supposed to use asymmetry of a gravitational field and to carry out flight bypassing the most power gravitational impact on the spacecraft. It leads to economy of power for 20-30%.

    Abstract: Many patents have suggested that spinning the aircraft wheel before touchdown would lessen tyre wear as indicated by landing smoke and rubber deposites on the runway caused by skidding wheel at the point of impact. In this paper, the required torque to spin the aircraft wheel at approach speed has been calculated using ANSYS Workbench CFX, which is... Show More
