- Content Description: "A study has been made of the variation of seaplane hull weight with length-beam ratio in a systematic series of hulls designed for constant gross weight and similar spray characteristics. It is found that increases in the length-beam ratio bring about small reductions in the hull weight if it is assumed that seaplanes having the same weight and bottom shape will be designed for the same load factor. A short discussion is also given to show the reduction in load factor that may occur with high length-beam ratios" (p. 1).
