Abstract:

The results of the tests for the steady state confirm generally speaking the prediction of the theory in the case of the flat foil. The influence of the aspect ratio and of the water surface on dihedral foils may be evaluated approximately. Therefore it can be assumed that the fundamental physical considerations are logical, and that they represent a convenient basis for any theoretical examination of nonsteady processes. The results of the tests of the nonsteady state do not yet permit any substantial conclusions for at the moment neither the speed of travel nor the direction of propagation of the waves was varied.
