Architectural type


St John the Baptist Church, Porthcawl is a medieval church and Grade I-listed building in Church Street, Newton, Porthcawl, Wales. It was built in the late twelfth century and has been remodelled several times in the succeeding centuries.

The church was probably built in the 1180s as the first rector was installed in 1189. It was refurbished by Jasper Tudor, Duke of Bedford in 1485–95 and again in 1825–27 by the rector Rev. Robert Knight who added the vestry and altered the stone pulpit. The building was restored by John Prichard and John Pollard Seddon in 1860–61 and an organ chamber was added in 1885. More restoration work in 1903 and 1927 included reflooring the nave, reroofing the porch and installing oak stalls in the chancel. A meeting room and vestry wing were added in 1993.[1]
The plan of the building is a tower in the west, nave, south porch, chancel, north-eastern chapel and northern wing. The church is built of roughly coursed grey rubble with grey or yellow ashlar dressings and has a slate roof with stone apex finials. The large and defensive west tower has wide-angle buttresses at each corner and a saddleback roof with embattled and corbelled parapets only on the northern and southern sides. The stone-tiled coping is topped by a weathervane. The northern and southern faces of the tower have four storeys of small round or square openings, although one on the south face is trefoil headed. The eastern facade has large shouldered openings above a corbel table that probably supported a wooden platform. The western side of the tower has a face corbel, reputedly of Saint John the Baptist, above a louvred gable opening, a clock and a three-light window above the ornate western doorway.[1]

It is thought his father was the poet Tomas Dafydd ap Ieuan ap Rhys ap Gronnw ap Meyrick ap Llewelyn ap Richard ap Dafydd of Pwll-y-Crochan in ‘Llechwedd Isaf’ (i.e. Arllechwedd Isaf), Caernarfonshire.

Mylius Aircraft

The Mylius Family of Aircraft was derived from the barn-built MHK-101 design, which later was adopted by MBB and became the Boelkow Bo-209 Monsun project. The Bo-209[1] was a full metal, low wing basic trainer with standard aerobatic capabilities (+6/-3.5 g), 150 hp O-320 or 160 hp IO-320 engine. The front wheel was retractable (fixed as an option). Both wings were foldable, thus permitting to trailer the aircraft by a car on its own main wheels, nose wheel retracted and tail forward.
The program became very successful. The Bo-209, mainly through its docile and responsive flight characteristics, was very popular among flight instructors all over the world. There is a faithful fan community of Bo-209 owners all over Europe, and used aircraft prices are still comparatively high. The program was abruptly terminated in 1972 with 100 aircraft built and more than 200 still in the open order books. But at that time, MBB had very profitable military orders and had no interest in continuing to build light aircraft.
With the experiences of the MBB Bo-109, the chief designer Hermann Mylius developed at his home an aerobatic trainer, single seat, 200 hp AEIO 360 engine, Christen inverted flight oil supply +- 8g load. This aircraft was built in two versions, The previous one, built in 1973, is ready to fly, and the other one, built in 1984, had a shock loading and is waiting for repair.
With the same wing, empennage, engine and landing gear, he built a two-seat trainer in the late eighties. The difference between the Bo-209 and the first My-103 is mainly the dimensions, because the Monsun was not roomy enough to be comfortable for longer training sessions. This aircraft was finished by his son, Albert Mylius and some colleagues in the late nineties. Airborne in 1998, it was a proof of concept plane and could not be certified. The seats were located on top of the wing box. In order to let it meet the actual crash deceleration requirements, the buildup of the deformation zone under the seats would have gotten too high. Though it had a considerably wider elbow room than the Bo-209, more comfort was desired. So the cockpit area was redesigned, the seats moved in front of the wingbow, and it got another 2&

Screw-propelled vehicle

Not to be confused with propeller propulsion.

This article has an unclear citation style. The references used may be made clearer with a different or consistent style of citation, footnoting, or external linking. (October 2012) (Learn how and when to remove this template message)

A screw-propelled vehicle

A screw-propelled vehicle is a land or amphibious vehicle designed to cope with difficult snow and ice or mud and swamp. Such vehicles are distinguished by being moved by the rotation of one or more auger-like cylinders fitted with a helical flange that engages with the medium through or over which the vehicle is moving. Modern vehicles called Amphirols and other similar vehicles have specialised uses.
The weight of the vehicle is typically borne by one or more pairs of large flanged cylinders; sometimes a single flanged cylinder is used with additional stabilising skis. These cylinders each have a helical spiral flange like the thread of a screw. On each matched pair of cylinders, one will have its flange running clockwise and the other counter-clockwise. The flange engages with the surface on which the vehicle rests. Ideally this should be slightly soft material such as snow, sand or mud so that the flange can get a good bite. An engine is used to counter-rotate the cylinders—one cylinder turns clockwise and the other counter-clockwise. The counter-rotations cancel out so that the vehicle moves forwards (or backwards) along the axis of rotation.
The principle of the operation is the inverse of the screw conveyor. A screw conveyor uses a helical screw to move semi-solid materials horizontally or at a slight incline; in a screw propelled vehicle, the semi-solid substrate remains stationary and the machine itself moves.

Early developments[edit]

Jacob Morath’s design for an auger driven agricultural machine, 1899.

One of the earliest examples of a screw-propelled vehicle was designed by Jacob Morath, a native of Switzerland who settled in St. Louis, Missouri in the United States in 1868.[1] Morath’s machine was designed for agricultural work such as hauling a plough. The augers were designed with cutting edges so that they would break up roots in the ground as the machine moved.[2]
One of the first screw-prop
