  • How to use the data base and how to contribute.

    This section of the rotary forum is devoted to collecting material that may be useful to those
    interested in studying rotary wing aircraft. As the name of the section implies right now
    mainly printed material is considered being one of:

    - technical text book
    - research report
    - university master/phd thesis
    - conference paper
    - granted patent
    - computer program
    - historical drawing
    - historical film/foto
    (showing technical details)

    (Table 1)

    Important: The material must be released for public use and not be protected by copyright!
    If you want to upload material to the forum that is under copyright please make sure that
    you have written consent by the copyright holder to do so. Please also read the disclaimer
    in the sticky Disclaimer thread!

    This data base will only be useful if the material posted here comes with a minimum set of
    information pertaining to an item. This set consists of:

    - title
    - author
    - link

    Please post each title to a separate thread, this will make it much easier in the long run
    to generate lists sorted by keywords, authors or other criteria.

    The title of the thread is usually just the title of the publication (see below). To complete
    the required information put the name of the author and a link in the body of the message.

    If the title of the publication describes the contens accurately you are done, just post the
    thread. If you are not sure whether your title is sufficient or you want further information
    on the rules of this section please follow the link below
    PS: the link currently points to a non sticky post in this section. In time I will try to find a somewhat more elegant way, but it will do for now
