Description: Technical Memorandum
From the Preface: The principles of operation of the Rayleigh Disk in stream flow and wave systems are presented, and its erratic behavior when used as a wave direction gage is discussed. The principle of operation of the disk is explained in accordance with Konig's theory of the Rayleigh Disk, given in the appendix. The erratic behavior of the disk when used as a wave direction indicator under natural conditions was noted during the use of two units operated for about six months at Long Branch, New Jersey and Huntington Beach, California.
