Abstract

Recent technical developments in the field of hydrodynamic sustentation, resulting from the unique techniques associated with the freebody testing of selfpropelled dynamically similar models, has resulted in a great resurgence of interest in the use of waterbased aircraft in the National Defence. This paper describes some of the more important aspects of this research and discusses possible trends in military waterbased aircraft development. In addition to the military applications of the new highspeed hydrodynamic developments, consideration is given to the development of transonic waterbased transport designs. Since the days of the famous flyingboat clippers, overocean transport has all but succumbed to the faster landplane. It is shown that an alljet waterbased transport, incorporating unusual safety and performance, is now a practical and logical development.
