Abstract:

The instrument uses the drag of a buoy to measure current velocities. The drag of 13-scale models of three proposed forms for the buoy and a full-scale model of one of these forms to determine which of the forms was best suited to the purpose. The full-scale model was also tested for stability. From the tests conducted Buoy 1 was found to have the most satisfactory performance. Author
