Description: Technical memorandum
Foreword: The study reported by this memorandum was accomplished at the U. S. Waterways Experiment Station, for the Bureau of Yards and Docks, U. S. Navy Department, during the period from November, 1940 to September, 1941. With respect to the problems involved and to the method of approach, the study is unique; and with regard to their value to our war effort, the findings have been worthwhile. Major K. E. Fields, C. E., was Director of the Experiment Station during the prosecution of the study. Chief of the Hydraulics Division was Mr. J.M. Caldwell, Associate Engineer. Successively in charge of the study, under the supervision of Mr. C. B. Patterson, Assistant Engineer, were Messrs. John A. Pollak, John C. Goodrum, and John E. Arnold, Junior Engineers. This report was prepared by Messrs. Patterson and Arnold. Acknowledgment is offered for the helpful suggestions of Mr. Martin E. Nelson, Engineer, who visited the Experiment Station in an advisory capacity during the earlier part of the study
