MetadataShow full item record
DescriptionThis static test was conducted for the purpose of determining the structural strength of the Curtiss PW-8 airplane submitted in accordance with contract No. 640, dated April 17, 1923. The wings of this airplane were below the strength requirement due to the fact that the plywood wing cover was not strong enough to transmit the stresses from the intermediate spars to the spars to which the fittings were bolted. The original wheels were also below the strength requirement.
