Abstract:

A comparison of the airflow characteristics of several aircraft carriers was made with a view toward establishing correlations between configu ration and airflow. The objective is the de velopment of an understanding of the carrier air flow problem that could lead to improved configu rations. Results show that, while casual rela tionships can be seen for specific configurations, prediction of the flow about one carrier from a knowledge of another is not very successful.
