Lorenz reports that aerodynamic tests showed that Frisbie tins were indeed a good size and weight for throwing. In he and his wife, Lucile, improved the design and renamed it the Pluto Platter.
Boomerang (Boomerang, #1)
It caught the eye of the Wham-O toy company owners, who took out a patent on behalf of Morrison and began mass production in Morrison said his invention was inspired by a popcorn can lid, not Yale or Frisbie pie pans. But perhaps because of them, in Wham-O changed the name to Frisbee.

The plastic disc fad had caught on fast in the Ivy League in —but nobody called the discs Pluto Platters. Fred R. Frisbee is strictly the nom de Ivy League. In , he told the Times that the name came from a comic strip called Mr. But in an interview quoted in the book Frisbee by Stancil E.
Johnson, Knerr had said that the name came from a promotional trip he took through Ivy League campuses, when he heard Harvard students talk about Frisbie -ing. Cohen '57 traced the flying disc back to It was then, wrote Cohen with tongue in cheek, that a Yale student, annoyed about having to attend chapel on a fine Sunday morning, snatched up a collection plate and skimmed it two hundred yards across the Green.

Springer New York August - gebunden - Seiten. Beschreibung More frisbees are sold each year than baseballs, basketballs and footballs combined. Yet these familiar flying objects have subtle and clever aerodynamic and gyrodynamic properties which are only recently being documented by wind tunnel and other studies.
In common with other rotating bodies discussed in this readily accessible book, they are typically not treated in textbooks of aeronautics and the literature is scattered in a variety of places.
This book develops the theme of disc-wings and spinning aerospace vehicles in parallel. Since many of the examples are recreational, anyone who enjoys these activities will likely find it profitable and enjoyable. In addition to spinning objects of various shapes, several exotic manned aircraft with disc planforms have been proposed and a prototypes built - these include a Nazi 'secret weapon' and the De Havilland Avrocar, also discussed in the book. Boomerangs represent another category of spinning aerodynamic body whose behavior can only be understood by coupling aerodynamics with gyrodynamics.
The narrative, supported by equations and graphs, explains how the shape and throw of a boomerang relates to its trajectory.
