Aerodynamic brake mechanisms especially designed to control the lowering of heavy weights on long cables are described in detail. These brakes meet certain requirements which can be stated in a general way. Methods of testing are discussed, and performance data are presented. Design formulas covering a wide range of variables are given. Author
