"The purpose of this investigation is to compare the load carrying characteristics of gases with different ratios of specific heat. The design, construction, and operation of an apparatus for testing and comparing the load carrying characteristics of gases are described. Several monatomic, diatomic, and triatomic gases were tested and the results evaluated and compared. The data are tabulated and displayed in a series of curves.
It was found that the monatomic gases exhibit a greater clearance for a given load and a greater total load carrying capacity than the diatomic gases which in turn have a greater clearance and total load carrying capacity than the triatomic gases and that an increase in molecular weight decreases clearance and total load carrying capacity"--Abstract, page ii.
