THE STABILITY CHARTS THE numerical results representing one of the primary aims of this paper are embodied in the 24 charts reproduced on pp. 282–4. These, while possessing some measure of generality, may readily be extended if desired so as to include a wider range of incidences, of inertia coefficients and of t. It is suggested that whenever a lateral stability investigation is made for any particular aircraft, the charts be used for a first approximation, and that this be followed by the construction of fresh E and R curves using the known values of the inertia coefficients and t. For this purpose all that is required is the filling in of one line of a table similar to Table II of Article II, and the drawing of a straight line and a hyperbola by a rapid and accurate method.
