Research on and analysis of single-effect low temperature flash evaporation process
From Summary: "The design studies included conception of ideas, rough sketches, rating calculations, design and detail drawings sufficient for cost estimating purposes, and arrangement drawings. The final drawings are presented in the report."
Research on Thermoelectric Heat Pumps
From Results: "Prior to stating results achieved, let us first discuss the measurements we were able to make, and how these measurements might--or might not--be indicative of the objective we strove to reach. Tables I and II, and related Figs. 11 and 12, show the best results obtained. Final Columns of Tables I and II are believed to show, at least to a degree, how good or how poor our best sputtered films turned out to be, compared with top-quality Peliter semiconductor materials."
