Inviting disaster : lessons from the edge of technology : an inside look at catastrophes and why they happen by James R Chiles ( Book )
14 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"On July 25, 2000, a small piece of debris on the runway at a Paris airport caused a tire to blow out on an Air France Concorde during its takeoff. A heavy slab of rubber that spun off from a tire created a shock wave in a wing tank, which burst open and sent fuel streaming into an engine intake. As flames trailed two hundred feet behind, the aircraft rolled out of control. The crash killed all 109 people on board and 4 more on the ground." "The tragedy of that departing Concorde is just one of many such chain-reaction catastrophes that have occurred as the world has grown more technologically complex and as our machines have become more difficult to control - and more deadly. Now, in an investigation into the causes and often brutal consequences of technological breakdowns, James R. Chiles offers new insights into the increasingly frequent machine disasters that haunt our lives."--BOOK JACKET
The god machine : from boomerangs to black hawks, the story of the helicopter by James R Chiles ( Book )
6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
History has known few more inventive minds than those responsible for the helicopter, mankind's most versatile flying machine. From the aerodynamic artistry of Leonardo da Vinci, through the futuristic tales of Jules Verne, to the prototypes built by the horde of rotationally obsessed enthusiasts who followed, here is the definitive story of a modern icon. Proposing that humans could hover in the air by hanging a fuselage beneath large spinning blades requires a substantial leap of the imagination--not to mention a pile of precision gadgetry. This book bears witness to the challenge of turning the earliest "rotating wing" aircraft into the helicopters of today.--From publisher description
