Alan Arnold Griffith (13 June 1893 – 13 October 1963) was the son of Victorian science fiction author George Griffith and an English engineer. Among many other contributions he is best known for his work on stress and fracture in metals that is now known as metal fatigue, as well as being one of the first to develop a strong theoretical basis for the jet engine. Griffith's advanced axial-flow turbojet engine designs, were integral in the creation of Britain's first operational axial-flow turbojet engine, the Metropolitan-Vickers F.2 which first ran successfully in 1941. Griffith however had little direct involvement in actually producing the engine, after he moved in 1939 from leading the engine department at the Royal Aircraft Establishment to start work at Rolls Royce.

  • Alan Arnold Griffith (13 de junio de 1893 – 13 de octubre de 1963) fue un ingeniero mecánico británico, autor de destacadas contribuciones en el campo de los estados tensionales y de fractura en metales (fenómenos conocidos actualmente como fatiga de materiales).​ Formuló una base teórica consistente para el desarrollo de los motores a reacción, contribuyendo decisivamente a la construcción en 1941 del , un avanzado turborreactor de compresor axial.
  • Alan Arnold Griffith (13 juin 1893 – 13 octobre 1963) est un ingénieur anglais passé à la postérité pour son interprétation magistrale de la rupture fragile et de la fatigue des métaux en termes de contraintes élastiques (1920). Par la suite, il fut le premier à mettre sur pied une théorie satisfaisante du turbopropulseur.
  • Alan Arnold Griffith (13 giugno 1893 – 13 ottobre 1963) è stato un ingegnere britannico.È conosciuto soprattutto per i suoi studi sulla tensione e sulla nei metalli, nota in particolare come , e per essere stato uno dei primi a sviluppare una base teorica consistente per i motori a reazione.
  • Alan Arnold Griffith (Londres, 13 de junho de 1893 — 13 de outubro de 1963) foi um engenheiro inglês. Dentre suas muitas contribuições, é conhecido por seu trabalho sobre e também por ser um dos primeiros a desenvolver uma base teórica para motores a jato.
  • Alan Arnold Griffith (* 13. Juni 1893 in London; † 13. Oktober 1963) war ein britischer Ingenieur, der besonders wegen seiner Arbeiten zur Materialermüdung (1920) als Begründer der Bruchtheorie und über Strahlturbinen (1926) bekannt wurde. 1917 entwickelte er mit Geoffrey Ingram Taylor eine experimentelle Methode, Spannungen in Modellen mechanischer Systeme durch Seifenhäute darzustellen. Er war Fellow der Royal Society.
