Large German airship stations

Description: "It is profitable to examine the organization and equipment of the German airship stations. The stations best adapted for serving as the basis of this study were chiefly constructed by the German Navy, during the war, for exclusively military purposes and do not therefore entirely satisfy the conditions of exploitation required for a civilian air service. The requisite modifications for satisfying the latter conditions may nevertheless be readily determined according to circumstances" (p. 1).

Researches on ailerons and especially on the test loads to which they should be subjected

Description: Aileron calculations have hitherto given greatly differing results according to different authors. It seems to be the general opinion that it is only necessary to give the ailerons such dimensions that the airplane can maneuver well, that the stresses they must undergo are relatively small, and that they are strong enough if their framework is of the order of strength as the wings to which they are attached. This article will show that the problem is really quite complex and that it should receive more attention.
