Abstract:

A review is undertaken of some of the more important elementary relationships which determine the influence of the air cushion on the pitch, heave, and roll stability of ground effect machines. The analyses presented yield only rough approximations of the quantities needed for design. Further, the analyses are restricted to cases of vehicles which are not in contact with the surfaces over which they travel, whereas the influences of surface contact are of primary importance in most practical problems.
