TL;DR: In this paper, a symmetrical six-mirror interferometer was proposed for density stratified liquids. But it is inconvenient for the study of density stratification because of the refractive index gradient in the undisturbed state.
Abstract: The conventional four-mirror interferometer is inconvenient for the study of density stratified liquids because of the refractive index gradient in the undisturbed state. It is found that a symmetrical six-mirror system is ideal for stratified liquids. The paths of the light rays through the system are analysed and experiments are described which verify that accurate quantitative results can be obtained.
TL;DR: The 50th anniversary of the foundation of the Honours degree course in aeronautical engineering at the Victoria University of Manchester was celebrated in this article and the aeronautics research and teaching activities of that university up to its recent amalgamation with the University of the Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST) to form the present-day University ofManchester.
Abstract: This issue of the Aeronautical Journal celebrates the 50th anniversary of the foundation of the Honours Degree Course in Aeronautical Engineering at the Victoria University of Manchester. The following article therefore describes the aeronautical research and teaching activities of that university up to its recent amalgamation with the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST) to form the present-day University of Manchester. This juncture provides a further justification for recording the Victoria University’s achievements. Both the Victoria University and UMIST had their roots in the nineteenth century although, apart from the relatively brief period of the First World War, neither of them was particularly involved in aeronautics until after the Second World War. However, as Sections 6.0-10.0 seek to demonstrate, thereafter the Victoria University’s involvement became considerable. The preceding Sections describe the origins of the Victoria University and UMIST and, in the case of the former institution, the subsequent activities of its staff and graduates in engineering and mathematics which, although not always specifically aeronautical in content, nonetheless had a profound influence on the development of the aeronautical sciences.
