dc.descriptionAmong the large number of methods which have been used to predict performance, those found most reliable depend, for a determination of the structural resistance, on comparison with other designs whose performance is known. This report is limited to the presentation of information which will be useful in predicting the maximum level speed, ignoring other performance factors, such as rate of climb and ceiling. The determination of the equivalent flat plate area of an airplane from the maximum level speed involves few assumptions, and comparison of the results obtained from a large number of representative airplanes affords a reliable basis on which to determine the high speed of a new design.en_US
