CIOS 'Black List of targets for urgent investigation' category: Vehicles

Duplicated typewritten report in English, 10 x 7.5 inches, 25 x 19 cms. 29 pages, 16 figures, mostly photographs.

Very good in original stapled card wrappers.

Particularly notable is the extensive reference to Dr. Kamm's work on slipstreaming and streamlining based on wind-tunnel analysis.

Wunibald Kamm (1893-1966) was an automobile designer and engineer, rightly famed for his pioneering work in aerodynamics, driving dynamics, tyre technology, minimalist construction techniques and engine combustion efficiency.

He is best known for his breakthrough in reducing car turbulence at high speeds; the style of car bodywork based on his research has come to be known as a Kammback or a Kamm-tail.

Dr. Kamm went to the United States as one of the first hundred German scientists stationed at the Dayton, Ohio Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and remained there as a consulting engineer until 1953.
