Technion Aerospace Laboratories
Building Israel's Air Capability

HAIFA—If the answer is
blowing in the wind, as a
popular songwriter said,
then researchers are seek-
ing it at the Baltimore Aero-
space Building.
It is now eight years
since the American Tech-
nion Society's Baltimore
Chapter began its drive to
help Israel achieve inde-
pendence in the air" by con-
structing an aerospace re-
search center at the Tech-
nion - Israel Institute . of
Technology. During that
time, Israel's aircraft in-
dustry has become a force
to be reckoned with in
world aviation. The activi-
ties in the laboratories con-
structed with the help of
Technion's friends in Balti-
more have played no small
part in that growth.
The building is the home
of Israel's main wind tun-
nels. Technion researchers
att, making innovative use
of these wind tunnels in a
varkiety of ways. Through
combining the skills of sci-

entists' and engineers in 20
departments, Technion re-
search haS-,helped in both
the advancement of science
and in building Israel. As Is-
rael's only technological uni-
versity with a Department
of Aeronautical Engineer-
ing, the Technion has made
a large contribution to the
development of Fsrael's air›
craft industry.
That growth has been phe-
nomenal. On the country's
27th independence day, a
proud nation watched as
the government unveiled
the Kfir, the fighter-bomber
designed and built in Israel.
Following the surprise
French embargo of the de-
livery of 50 paid-for Mirage
IIIc jets after the Six Day
War, it became clear that
Israel would have to work
towards producing its own
sophisticated aircraft. De-
fense experts wondered if it
could be done. Engineers at
Israel Aircraft Industries
(IAI), many of whom are
Technion trained, said it
could. And they set about to
do it.
Israel Aircraft Industries
had gained experience ear-
lier in the production of
non-military craft. The first
aircraft totally designed
and built by IAI was the
Arava, a short take-off and
landing passenger and
cargo transport. Production
of the Arava was followed
by the design and construc-

tion of an improved version
of the Westwind business
jet. The Technion's Depart-
ment of Aeronautical Engi-
neering assisted IAI in per-
forming structural and
wind tunnel tests, the latter
in the Baltimore Building,
for these aircraft.
Today a Technion team,
using the most advanced
computerized methods, is
continuing to work on im-
provement of body design
and wing shape. These ex-
periments are run from a
computer room on the build-
ing's second floor. This fa-
cility is a source of local
pride - the computer itself
is made in Israel, produced
by the Elbit Corporation.
There are two wind tun-
nels housed in the Balti-
more Aerospace Building.
One is supersonic, produc-
ing speeds higher than that
of sound. The second is
transonic, working at
around the speed of sound.
This tunnel, the only one of
its kind, was deSigned by
Technion staff members to
meet the special demands
of research here.
A sophisticated appartus,
it is called a "blow down"
tunnel because of the way
it operates. Air is added,
blown down, into the tun-
nel, enabling it to function
for longer periods. This re-
sults in conservation of
energy, increasingly impor-
tant today. and in more ex-
periments-per-unit of corn-
pressed air, a second sav-
ing.
The design and construc-
tion of 'additional wind tun-
nel facilities continue, as
the Technion works towards
improving the country's air-
craft, and in other unre-
lated areas that can make
use of the special facilities
of the laboratories that Bal-
timore built.
As example of the latter,
researchers are using the
tunnels to develop methods
to protect orchards from
heavy winds. Architects too
are making use of the facil-
ities in studies of building
design. And in the future
Baltimore's wind tunnels
will be employed in pollu-
tion studies.

Name of Code
Of Jewish Law

By RABBI SAMUEL FOX

(Copyright 1977, JTA, Inc.)

"Shulkhan Arukh" is the
term given to the code of
law arranged by Joseph
Karo in the 16th Century.
The term means "a pre-
. pared (or set) table." The
term suggests that this
code of law is a simple ar-
rangement that can be used
by the average man in de-
termining the proper way
of life according to Jewish
law.
The term is meant to dis-
tinguish this code of law
from Karo's more .sophis-
ticated commentary on a
previous Code of Law (Tur)
which is referred to as
"Beit Yosef." The latter
was an involved discussion
of laws while the Shulkhan
Arukh was a comparatively
simple arrangement of
laws.

U.S. Pays Its
UNESCO Dues

WASHINGTON (JTA)-
The State Department has
confirmed that the U.S. has
paid its 1975-76 dues to the
United Nations Education-
al, Scientific and Cultural
Organization, thereby en-
ding a three-year impasse
resulting from UNESCO's
poliliticalization of itself in
discriminatory actions
against Israel.
The payment of $43 mil-
lion in back dues is about
20 percent of UNESCO's
two-year budget. UNESCO
was borrowing from oil-rich
Arab states to meet ex-
penses.
