During the early Cold War days when 17-year-old David Eagles applied to the Fleet Air Arm hoping to be a fighter pilot for his National Service, he little imagined the lifetime career that was to follow. After Flying Training with the US Navy and loan Service with the Australian Fleet Air Arm, he settled into Fleet Air Arm fighter pilot life. Selected to attend the Empire Test Pilots School, he progressed through Naval Test Pilot duties and was forced to eject from a Buccaneer during catapult launch trials. He joined British Aerospace and played a major part in the cockpit design and flight testing of the RAF s first fly by wire and swing wing aircraft, the Panavia Tornado, finishing a fascinating career by making the first flight of the EAP, the technology demonstrator for the new Eurofighter Typhoon."

The Tornado F2 had a troubled introduction to service. Unwanted by its crews and procured as a political imperative, it was blighted by failures in the acquisition system. It was adapted from a multi-national design, planned by committee, and developed to counter a threat which disappeared. Modified rapidly before it could be sent to war, the Tornado F3 eventually matured into a capable weapons system, but despite datalinks and new air-to-air weapons, its poor reputation sealed its fate. David Gledhill, a former Tornado F3 navigator, tells the story from an insider’s perspective of the early days as one of the first instructors on the Operational Conversion Unit, through the aircraft’s development and operational testing, to its demise. He reflects on the aircraft’s capabilities and deficiencies, and analyses why it was mostly under-estimated by opponents. Although many books have already described the Tornado F3 in detail, Gledhill’s involvement in its development provides a unique insight into this complex and misunderstood aircraft programme, dispelling some of the myths that have dogged its reputation for decades. This is Gledhill’s third book, and like the others, it captures the story in pictures taken in the cockpit and around the squadron. Illustrations: 123 b/w and 62 colour photographs

This updated and reorganized fourth edition of Software Testing: A Craftsman's Approach applies the strong mathematics content of previous editions to a coherent treatment of Model-Based Testing for both code-based (structural) and specification-based (functional) testing. These techniques are extended from the usual unit testing discussions to full coverage of less understood levels integration and system testing. The Fourth Edition: Emphasizes technical inspections and is supplemented by an appendix with a full package of documents required for a sample Use Case technical inspection Introduces an innovative approach that merges the Event-Driven Petri Nets from the earlier editions with the "Swim Lane" concept from the Unified Modeling Language (UML) that permits model-based testing for four levels of interaction among constituents in a System of Systems Introduces model-based development and provides an explanation of how to conduct testing within model-based development environments Presents a new section on methods for testing software in an Agile programming environment Explores test-driven development, reexamines all-pairs testing, and explains the four contexts of software testing Thoroughly revised and updated, Software Testing: A Craftsman’s Approach, Fourth Edition is sure to become a standard reference for those who need to stay up to date with evolving technologies in software testing. Carrying on the tradition of previous editions, it will continue to serve as a valuable reference for software testers, developers, and engineers.

Tornados cause more than one third of the total insured loss due to all natural hazards in the United States. The current design of civil engineering structures for wind loads is based upon model tests in low-speed boundary-layer wind tunnels that generate straight-line winds. Winds resulting from tornados are far from being simple boundary-layer types. Tornados are vortices with significant tangential and vertical velocity components as well as large pressure gradients. Assessment of accurate wind loads in tornados is the first step toward better design of structures that will save lives and reduce property loss. Several model tornado simulators have been tested to assist in determining the mechanism of simulation and important flow parameters that are required to assist in designing a prototype simulator that will be housed in the Wind Simulation and Testing Laboratory at Iowa State University (ISU). This paper focuses on the design process that led to the latest model simulator whose design will be used to build the prototype tornado simulator.
