Hoerner studied mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Munichearning a Dipl. Finally, he obtained a degree as Dr.
From there, he went to Junkerswhere he worked as the head of design aerodynamics, before going to Messerschmittwhere he worked as a research aerodynamicist during World War II. After the war, he was “invited” Operation Paperclip to emigrate to the United States, where he worked in aerodynamics at Dynamjc Field in Ohio.
In andDr. Hoerner prepared a manuscript for the book Aerodynamic Drag.
The technical publishing houses in New York City were not confident enough to bring a book as specialized as this to the market. As a result, he published the book himself inusing a photo-offset process and sold copies of the book by mail order from his home. In it was reissued as Fluid-Dynamic Drag. With the rapid progress in aerodynamics over the years, he prepared an update to the book, which was published in This book contains documentation of the worldwide knowledge at the time of the sources of aerodynamic drag and the means to quantify aerodynamic drag.
While substantial knowledge on this subject has been learned sincethis book is often the starting point in work where aerodynamic drag must be calculated.
Hoerner a contract in the mids to write a companion volume Fluid-Dynamic Lift. Co-authored with Henry V. Hoerner died before publication.
This book, like its companion, contains documentation of the worldwide knowledge on the generation of aerodynamic lift and dynmaic still used heavily. Hoerner was married to Liselotte A. After his death, she continued the mail order business, selling copies of both books to engineers around the world. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
