On a Cushion of Air Book Excerpt:

This is the story of how private foreign enterprise in the form of Swedish Lloyd and Swedish America Line, who formed a British company called 'Hoverlloyd', galvanised the British Government in to supporting this new concept in transport through the formation of a British Rail subsidiary called 'Seaspeed'.

Theory and Design of Air Cushion Craft Book Excerpt:

This definitive text describes the theory and design both of Air Cushion Vehicles (ACV) and Surface Effect Ships (SES). It begins by introducing hovercraft types and their development and application throughout the world in the last three decades, before going on to discuss the theoretical aspects of ACV and SES craft covering their hovering performance, dynamic trim over calm water, resistance, stability, manoeuvrability, skirt configuration and analysis of forces acting on the skirts, ACV and SES seakeeping, and the methodology of scaling aerodynamic and hydrodynamic forces acting on the ACV/SES from model test data. The latter chapters describe a design methodology, including design criteria and standard methods for estimating craft performance, lift system design, skirt design, hull structure, propulsion systems and power unit selection. Much technical information, data, and references to further work on hovercraft and SES design is provided. The book will be a useful reference to engineers, technicians, teachers, students (both undergraduate and postgraduate), operators etc. who are involved in ACV/SES research, design, construction and operation. Guides the reader on how to perform machinery and systems selection within ACV and SES overall design For teachers, students (both at under- and post-graduate level), engineers and technicians involved in ACV/SES

A Technical Summary of Air Cushion Craft Development Book Excerpt:

A brief review is given of the technical status of the state-of-the-art in air cushion craft as it exists today. The designation 'air cushion craft' is all encompassing, in that it covers all craft operating close to the surface and relying on a cushion of air to generate significant portions of their lift. It includes both the amphibious craft known as air cushion vehicles (ACV) or hovercraft and the nonamphibious craft known as surface effect ships (SES). Where applicable, the technology of other special uses of the air cushion is called upon to illustrate a point.

Aerodynamic Characteristics of Air cushion Models at Very Low Ground Clearances and at Free stream Dynamic Pressures Exceeding Cushion Pressure Book Excerpt:

Air-cushion models employing peripheral jet and plenum cushions of circular, rectangular, and side-by-side planforms were tested in hovering and at forward speed in the 17-foot (5.18-meter) test section of the Langley 300-MPH 7- by 10-foot tunnel. The principal purpose of these tests was to study the characteristics of air cushions when freestream dynamic pressure exceeded air-cushion pressure. Also examined were the hovering performance and the effects of moving ground belt, crosswind, height, and angle of attack. For the configurations tested, there was no significant loss in cushion performance when free-stream dynamic pressure exceeded cushion pressure.
