Glauert was born in SheffieldYorkshire ; his father Louis Glauert was a cutlery manufacturer. Glauert wrote numerous reports and memoranda dealing with aerofoil and propeller theory.
His book, The Elements of Aerofoil aorplane Airscrew Theory was the single most important instrument for spreading airfoil and wing theory around the English speaking world.
Glauert independently developed Prandtl-Glauert method from the then-existing aerodynamic theory and published his results in The Proceedings of the Royal Society in In the s, he was the academic supervisor of aerodynamicist and educationalist Gwen Alston.
Glauert died aged 41 in an accident in a small park in Fleet common in Farnborough. The tragic and incalculable accident which resulted in the death of Hermann Glauert concerned us also, though airplanee intimately.
Glauert was a distinguished Edwardian of the early days, leaving the School with a mathematical scholarship to Trinity, Cambridgein He became a Fellow of the Royal Societyprincipal scientific officer at the Royal Aircraft EstablishmentFarnborough, and no less than an international authority on aeronautical science cf Prandtl-Glauert singularity.
He was killed by a chance fragment of a tree that was being blown up on Aldershot Common. They had three children: Glauert is buried in the Ship Lane Cemetery, Farnborough. After his wife’s death in her body propelllers buried alongside that of her husband.
