Oswald, W. Bailey (1932) The transverse force distribution on ellipsoidal and nearly ellipsoidal bodies moving in an arbitrary potential flow. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-09062007-141717
The forces acting on an airship moving in a certain field of flow and the resulting path of motion are the result of numerous aerodynamic factors. These factors are principally skin friction drag, form drag, induced drag, aerodynamic transverse force distribution, lateral and longitudinal inertial and static force distribution, lift, and moments arising from all above factors. With the exception of aerodynamic transverse force distribution, lift, and induced drag, these factors are either small or may be determined by methods now available.
