An investigation of the spray characteristics in smooth water of four related models having length-beam ratios of 6, 9, 12, and 15 constant values of length to the 2nd power-beam product has been made in Langley tank no. 1. The parent model for the series was similar to a Navy twin-engine flying boat.
