Abstract:

OF THE FOUR EXPERIMENTAL METHODS UTILIZED TO OBTAIN AIRSHIP ROTARY DERIVATIVES, THE WHIRLING ARM TECHNIQUE AND THE METHOD OF CURVED OR BOWED MODELS APPEAR TO OFFER THE BEST RESULTS. The meager amount of data obtained with these methods along with some of the aerodynamic oscillator data forms the basis for the combined theoreticalempirical method developed to predict the rotary derivatives of airships.
