dc.description.abstractIt is the desire of the navy to develop ships with the highest possible speed compatible with other requirements of weight, space, and economy. This is especially true for small boats such as torpedo boats where speed is the main defensive weapon. If the frictional resistance of a ship could be reduced by air lubrication, higher speeds could be attained with the same horsepower.en_US
