LIFT AND DRAG MEASUREMENT AND ANALYSIS OF THE STERN SEAL OF THE CAPTURED AIR BUBBLE TESTCRAFT XR-3

Tests were run to measure the total lift and drag forces acting on the stern seal of the surface effect ship testcraft XR-3. Stern seal lift and drag as well as total testcraft drag were plotted against testcraft speed as a function of craft weight, speed, center of gravity and rear seal overpressure. (Author)
