Canada's Role in the Second Decade of the Space Age — Inner Space Supersonics 670901
This paper, presented to all types of Canadian engineers, has as its objective the stimulation of their interest in the many problems yet unsolved in the aviation industry. The paper describes briefly the SST programs - the British/French “Concorde,” theUnitedStates “Boeing2707” andtheU.S.S.R. “TU-144.” Then various engineering problems such as sonic boom, sideline noise during takeoff, cosmic rays, fuel consumption, reliability, and airport requirements, are considered. Finally, ways to reduce ground time are examined.
