"The selection of the problem for which this paper offers a solution was made from a list of thesis subjects submitted to Dr. Aaron J. Miles by the United States Air Forces. This suggestion called for the development of a method whereby air flow through woven materials such as metallic screening and woven cloth could be predicted in terms of the pressure drop across the material. The range of the pressure differentials to be investigated was from zero to twenty inches of water.
After some preliminary work it became obvious that an investigation of the air flow through all types of woven materials would be beyond the scope of a paper of this kind. Therefore, it was decided to confine the work to metallic screening alone which was more easily obtainable and whose physical measurements could more readily be determined with the equipment available locally.
The screening used in the experimental portion of the work consisted of sieves which were obtained from the Ceramic and the Metallurgical Engineering Departments of Missouri School of Mines"--Preface, page iii.
