  • Separation is Slightly Viscous Flow (rejected: unclear reason)

AIAA 2012

  • New Theory of Flight (submitted March 8)
  • Separation in Slightly Viscous Flow (submitted March 8)
  • New Theory of Flight (revised version as one article submitted May 30)

The article was declined on August 3 by AIAA assigned editor Greg Blaisdell, based on two referee reports defending the existing theory as functional, with however the acknowledgement:

  • Your paper is unusual in that it challenges our existing understanding of aerodynamics.

Yes, it does. The further correspondence with AIAA including the referee’s reports will be posted here. The question is if challenging existing understanding is acceptable or not. AIAA says it is not, but in science this is fundamental: Science which cannot be challenged is dead science.

Here are the referee’s reports and our analysis:
