30 editions published between 1865 and 1999 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before this book passes from the writer's hands into those of the reader, the author will be once more among the ice of the arctic regions. Though the last page of manuscript was written on the morning of my embarkation, the book itself has been no hasty work. I returned nearly two years ago from the expedition which I have endeavored to describe. Before dismissing the book, however, from my hands, I wish to say a few words by way of explanation of certain matters connected with my explorations. The reader will perhaps wonder why so much importance was given to the discovery of the Frobisher relics. I answer, partly because of the interest which attached itself to the remains of men so long ago left in that waste land; but partly, too, because the discovery of these remains, and the tracing of their history among the Esquimaux, confirmed, in a remarkable manner, my belief that these people retain among them, with great positiveness, the memory of important and strange incidents; and as their traditions of Frobisher, when I was able to get at them, were so clear, I am persuaded that among them may be sought, by one competent, with every chance of complete success, the sad history of Sir John Franklin's men"--Preface.

The Effect of modifications to the horizontal-tail profile on the high-speed longitudinal control of a pursuit airplane by Charles Francis Hall( Book )

2 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the results of high-speed wind-tunnel research on the effects of modifications to the horizontal-tail profile on the static longitudinal stability and control of a pursuit airplane at high speeds. Two symmetrical stabilizers (a modified NACA four-digit and an NACA 65-series airfoil), two flat-sided elevators, and three elevators with bulged profiles were investigated. The tests covered Mach numbers from approximately 0.30 to 0.80. The pitching-moment and elevator hinge-moment characteristics for a model airplane with the various tails are shown. The distribution of pressure over the tails is presented

The evaluation consisted of the vacuum-melting of slug uranium charges and derby uranium "as reduced" charges in graphite crucibles having different coatings, followed by studies of (1) the appearance of the coatings and (2) the metal quality (impurity levels) of the products
