Amster, Warren (1947) Calculation of the static longitudinal stability of multi-engine tractor-propeller-driven monoplanes. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechTHESIS:04132011-113934958
This report has three main purposes: 1. To establish an engineering computation procedure for predicting C_M_(c.g.) as a function of C_L for a multi-engine monoplane of conventional configuration with tractor propellers mounted on and forward of the wing. 2. To recommend aircraft configurations which will minimize the destabilizing effect of power. 3. To provide a physical explanation for the effect of power on stability.
