Notes on the Geology of Upper Nizina River Alaska

Description: Introduction: It is not intended to give here a full account of the geology of the district but rather to present certain new features that were observed during the season, with enough of the general geology, which is already well known and fully described in other publications, to make them understandable.

The C.A.M.S. 54 G.R. transatlantic seaplane (French)

Description: Tested at the end of March, 1928, the C.A.M.S. 54 G.R. was built for the purpose of crossing the Atlantic from Europe by way of the azores. It has a biplane construction with wings mounted above the hull. It is powered by two new series 500 HP. geared Hispano Suiza V type engines.

Rene Couzinet monoplane (French)

Description: Having been designed as a long range aircraft, it carries 6200 liters of fuel and 280 liters of oil and has three propeller groups, each with a 180 HP Hispano-Suiza engine capable of 230 HP.

Contribution to the systematic investigation on Joukowsky profiles

Description: This article resulted from the need of showing, in a simple way, how the aerodynamic properties of airfoils are affected by the shape of their profiles. No general solution of this problem could be found, since the profile shapes cannot ordinarily be expressed by simple mathematical formulas. This advantage is possessed only by the Joukowsky profiles and this discussion of the problem is therefore limited to them.

Parachutes for aircraft

Description: In order to provide the essential data on air resistance, rapidity of opening, shock stresses in opening, etc., for subsequent use, we will first give a few test results.

A few more mechanical-flight formulas without the aid of polar diagrams

Description: The reliability of the assumption of a parabolic shape of the polar curve is investigated and found satisfactory for all practical purposes. It is further shown that the aerodynamically best possible or "ideal" airplane is produced on this assumption. Lastly, detailed suggestions are given on the possibilities of application of this method of calculation. It especially simplifies the design and evaluation of structural changes and the determination of the limits of technical possibilities. The present report deals only with the relations of the airfoils. The mutual action of the airfoils, engine and propeller will be treated in a subsequent report.
