Abstract

THERE are two outstanding principles which underlie all airship design, two criteria by which everything undertaken may bo judged. The first is that the body produced shall offer a minimum of resistance to propulsion through the air; the second is that, having shaped a body in that way, it shall give a maximum of disposable lift for a given volume. An airship also, at the present time at least, must be produced for a minimum of cost. For this reason every effort must be made to design the structure as cheaply, as economically, and as quickly as possible.
