The De la Peña diary : la rebelión de Tejas, a memoir by an officer of Santa Anna( Visual )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documents controversies surrounding the De la Peña Diary (Mexican officer José Enrique de la Peña's critical account of the Mexican campaign into Texas in 1835-1836) such as the document's authenticity, its means of entering the U.S., and veracity of its report of Davy Crockett's death. The film includes coverage of an academic conference on the diary and interviews librarians and collectors whose lives and careers have been touched by the document. Both Mexican and U.S. historians are interviewed to give an overview of events surrounding the document's composition
Smooth water resistance of a number of planing boat designs by Eugene P Clement( Book )

2 editions published between 1959 and 1967 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Models of a number of different planing boat designs were towed in smooth water to provide data for guidance in designing aircraft rescue boats and similar high-speed craft. Resistance, trim, rise, and wetted surface were determined for each design for either standard or comparable conditions of hull loading and center of gravity location. The test data, lines, and hull form characteristics for each design are presented in a design data sheet. The resistances of the different designs are compared, and reasons given for significant differences. (Author)
Model tests of a round-bilge boat with and without the snadecki longitudinal strakes by Charles W Tate( Book )

1 edition published in 1958 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A model of a round-bilge boat was tested for resistance, with and without Snadecki-type longitudinal strakes. In general, for the conditions tested, the addition of the strakes caused an increase in resistance. However, at very high speeds, and with the CG in an aft position, some reduction in resistance was obtained. Further effects of adding the strakes were to decrease the running trim and to increase the CG rise of the model. (Author)
Model tests of a tunnel-bottom 36-foot river patrol craft( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Model tests of a new and somewhat unconventional boat, the 36-foot River Patrol Craft, were made by the Model Basin. The bottom of this craft has a single deep tunnel forward which gradually decreases convexly in depth to a flat bottom at 60 percent of the hull length. There it bisects into two shallow tunnels, which are symmetrical about their centerlines. The afterbody tunnels increase in depth to the transom. During the tests it was discovered that the single tunnel forward collected an appreciable quantity of air which then migrated aft past the propeller positions in the tunnels of the afterbody and from there astern into the wake. Test results for two design displacements, above water and underwater photographs at these displacements, and a discussion of the flow of air under the hull are presented. (Author)
