Airplane Cabin Pressurization Collection [Del Mar]

Extent:
0.89 Cubic feet ((2 boxes))
Type:
Collection descriptions
Archival materials
Lantern slides
Reports
Drawings
Date:
bulk 1938-1957
Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of the materials relating to Bruce Del Mar's airplane cabin pressurization and air quality engineering work, including: 82 3.25 by 4 inch glass lantern slides featuring images, graphs and charts of Del Mar's cabin pressurization work including work on the Douglas DC-4E (possibly for a lecture); reports; drawings; correspondence; and issues of Douglas' internal management newsletter. There are also several reports on air transportation of large cargo, including vehicular trailers.
Biographical / Historical:
Bruce Del Mar (b. 1913) graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1937 with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. During his college summer breaks, Del Mar had worked at Douglas Aircraft Company, and after his graduation he returned to to Douglas full-time. At Douglas he worked with other scientists on airplane cabin pressurization, which would allow passengers to comfortably fly above 10,000 feet without oxygen masks. Del Mar, along with Douglas engineer Wolfgang Klemperer, held the patent for the first pressurization system of a commercial aircraft. In 1952, Del Mar used the money he received from royalties on his patents and inventions to found Del Mar Engineering Laboratories in Santa Monica, California. His company, later renamed Del Mar Avionics, built targeting systems for military aircraft. During later years, the company produced HydraSet, a hydraulic lifting device used to hoist space shuttles onto 747s for transport to Cape Kennedy and to move fuel rods in nuclear power plants. Besides his work in the aviation field, Del Mar also had great success in the medical field and in 1963 he was the first to patent and produce the Holter monitor, an electrocardiogram system that allowed physicians to track their patients' hearts continuously.

Scope and Contents:
NSFK training that emphasized duties of a soldier with less emphasis on flight training or aircraft design, Reimar disliked; [1:56] Herr Heldenklau (sp?) came to remove Horten workers to draft in army for eastern front, August/September 1944. [8:00] Messerschmitt tried to take over the Horten group during the fall of 1943, by working through the RLM. Bilco (sp?) for Messerschmitt but authorized by someone else? [21:54] Walter tries to shield Reimar from many problems and distractions at this time. [26:00] Milch vs. Messershmitt; [33:00] Seven workshops around Germany. On possibility of arrest [36:00]. Reimar's view of work required to build a sailplane superior to D-30, possible but very difficult and expensive to build a modern (circa 1980's) all-wing sailplane that is superior to conventional types [39:00]; [41:22] Hoffman, a good glider pilot, asks to fly H III g (?) with Volkswagen engine, started and stopped, then soared for seven hours, gave glowing report on the aircraft, soared from Göppingen to Frankfurt. [45:10] Göttingen bombed by Americans, Walter warned after announcement on British radio... bombs hit runways, missed buildings and workshops... Hortens dispersed what they could away from the airfield. [57:00] Walter talks about his scientist father, wrote many books, obscure and mainstream... Junkers never came to Horten shops to study their designs... [59:08] Göring told the Hortens to work with Junkers on H XVIII but too late; [60:27] H II d "the butterfly" -- "more butter for them."

Date:
August 1986
Scope and Contents:
Reimar continues discussing problems with glue, [3:17]. Did Reimar ask any of his former employees from wartime Horten workshops to join him in Argentina? No, for them, inflation and cost of living too high…[7:00] scientists and engineers paid well, less skilled labor paid low wages, [7:33] laborers about 200 pesos per month, draftsmen about 400, engineers 6-800, Reimar 2,700 per month, Reimar talks about difficulties to design and manufacturer complex components. [11:47] Reimar on the sailplane that competed in 1952 world meet in Spain [I. Ae. 34m], 1 survived to 1986 but only good for museum – not flyable. [14:03] Fate of Pulqui II sailplane prototypes, [16:00] Pulqui II details top secret, Sanders got year-and-a-half in prison for having a small drawing as he went through customs. [18:17] Flight test results – Pulqui II glider, Behrens test pilot: 1st flight, "rudder is impossible … aileron" very difficult. Modifications incorporated into 2nd Pulqui II sailplane, new tail, fin and rudder, aileron control …other problems with Pulqui II [to 26:28]; Reimar blamed for failure of Pulqui II. Tank flew sailplane but he did not stall the aircraft. Reimar arrived in Argentina 10 May 1948 [31:59] and first Pulqui II sailplane flew end of August, [33:00] why two Pulqui II sailplanes required. [35:11] Why use skid gear instead of more conventional (and complex) landing gear on these sailplanes? [39:50] Tank refused to change Pulqui II design as Reimar advised, because Argentine officials already had models of the aircraft that showed design details. [43:37] Who measured Pulqui II design in Cordoba wind tunnel, Buford (sp?) repaired tunnel, improved operation. [47:00] Tank would not accept Reimar's recommendations to improve Pulqui II, Reimar left Tank in 1949. [50:45] Reimar wanted more taper and twist for the wing, other solutions to Pulqui II problems difficult for Tank for various reasons. [51:51] Northrop B-49 had fixed slots with laminar profile wingtips – Reimar: how can you have good laminar flow with the airflow disturbed by the slots? [55:31] Who ordered Pulqui II project terminated? [56:30] Reimar on inferior engines installed in Argentine transport aircraft, used in Ju 52 that Reimar used to tow delta glider, tow plane has engine failure and force-lands in soccer stadium, lucky no injuries.

Historical Note:
In June of 1936, delegates from the Garden Club of America made a ten-day trip to Paris, France and its environs on the invitation of the President of the Societe des Amateurs des Jardins. During the first five days the group visited Voisin, an estate belonging to the Comte and Comtesse de Fels, modern gardens in Paris, Vaux le Vicomte, the greenhouses of the City of Paris, Museum of the Duc d'Orleans, Courances, and the roof garden of the Compagnie de Distribution d'Electricite. The final five days included trips to the Castle of Marais, the home of French inventor, engineer, and scientist Georges Claude at Rueil, the Vilmorin Etablissement, Sceaux, the Palace of Versailles, Gros-Bois, and the Cemetery at Picpus. Highlights of the trip included a visit to Chateau de Grosbois, and Albert Kahn's Japanese garden. They also learned about the innovation and potential of artificial heating and lighting during their visit to Compagnie de Distribution d'Electricite.
