Advancing Point and Figure in the 21st Century Point and Figure has been around for over 130 years and the method is just as essential for chart analysis today as it always has been. While the basic principles of the technique have remained unchanged, those working with Point and Figure must still push the boundaries of how it is used, looking to make it even more insightful and powerful. This is exactly what Jeremy du Plessis has achieved with 21st Century Point and Figure. Previously, it was thought that the lack of time on Point and Figure charts meant that time-based tools and indicators could not be used, and lack of volume meant that the importance of individual columns could not be determined. Jeremy du Plessis shows definitively that neither is the case and that with the use of lateral thinking there are also a host of other new techniques that can be added to Point and Figure charts and analysis.In this advanced practical guide, du Plessis explains: how to use moving averages, Bollinger bands, Donchian channels and parabolic stop and reverse with Point and Figure charts; how time-based indicators such as overbought/oversold, RSI, directional movement and MACD can be used with Point and Figure charts; how column volume can be used to assess a column's strength and how volume at box level can be used to assess support and resistance areas; how traditional accumulation distribution lines, such as on-balance volume and volume-price trend, can be used to enhance the reading of the chart; how the analysis of relative strength and spreads can be enhanced using these new techniques; and, two new Point and Figure based market breadth indicators. Finally, he introduces a new Point and Figure based oscillator that can also be used on time-based charts. All topics are illustrated with numerous high-quality, full colour charts and observations from years of trading experience. The techniques described here open up a whole world of new and advanced analysis tools.You will see that there is more to Point and Figure than you ever imagined, and that it is more flexible than has ever been realised before. If you employ Point and Figure analysis, ensure you don't miss out on these powerful new techniques - be sure to bring your analysis into the 21st century.

Theoretically derived charts showing the profile-drag-thrust ratio are presented for a helicopter rotor operating in forward flight and having hinged rectangular blades with a linear twist of -8 degrees. The charts, showing the profile-drag characteristics of the rotor for various combinations of pitch angle, ratio of thrust coefficient to solidity, and a parameter representing shaft power input, are presented for tip-speed ratios ranging from 0.05 to 0.50. In addition, the ratio of thrust coefficient to solidity as a function of inflow ratio and blade pitch angle is presented in chart form.
The charts of this paper differ from the rotor performance papers previously published by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics in that the theory on which the charts are based includes an approximate allowance for stall in the reversed-flow region and contains no small-angle assumptions regarding blade-section inflow angles and velocities. The charts of this paper are therefore considered more accurate than previous ones for flight conditions involving high inflow velocities and large regions of reversed velocity that may be encountered by high-performance helicopters. The assumption is made, however, that outside of the reversed-velocity region, the section angles of attack are small; thus the angles can be replaced by their sine. In addition, other than including an approximate allowance for stall in the reversed-velocity region, the charts do not include stall and compressibility effects.
The charts may be used to study the effects of design changes on rotor performance and to indicate optimum performance conditions, as well as to estimate quickly rotor performance in forward flight. They are also useful in obtaining inflow-ratio and pitch-angle values for use in calculating flapping coefficients and spanwise loadings. The method of applying the charts t o performance estimation is illustrated through sample calculation of a typical rotor-performance problem.

The similarity of Larson-Miller master curves for rupture life and minimum creep rate is shown for aluminum, two aluminum alloys, two steels, and two high-temperature high-strength alloys. In addition, the similarity of master curves for rupture life and for 0.2- and 0.5-percent creep strain is shown for the aluminum alloys. The approximate invariance of the product of rupture life and the minimum creep rate is shown for these materials. With equivalent parameters derived on the basis of this invariance, the master curves for the various applications are generalized essentially to a single curve in the high-temperature region for each material. The minimum creep rate and the 0.2- and 0.5-percent creep strain can be determined from the master curve for rupture by this method for the materials investigated.

As a means of comparing the performance capabilities of various helicopter propulsion systems, charts have been presented for estimating the hovering endurance of a helicopter in the form of a hovering-endurance parameter as a function of the ratio of total fuel load to helicopter initial weight for a range of initial thrust coefficients from 0.002 to 0.012 and for values of rotor mean lift coefficient from 0.24 to .072. The charts were presented for a helicopter having rotor blades with ideal twist. However, corrections may be applied to the hovering endurance to account for other combinations of twist and taper. The effects of stall and compressibility have been neglected.

In order to facilitate solutions of the general problems of helicopter selection, the aerodynamic performance of rotors is presented in the form of charts showing relations between primary design and perfomrance variables. By the use of conventional helicopter theory, certain variables are plotted and other variables are considered fixed. Charts consructed in such a manner show typical results, trends, and limits of helicopter performance. Performance conditions considered include hovering, horizontal flight, climb, and ceiling. Special problems discussed include vertical climb and the use of rotor-speed-reduction gears for hovering.

Convenient nomographic charts are presented that permit determining changes in enthalpy for various processes; namely, compression, combustion at constant pressure, expansion, and heat exchange. Properties presented are enthalpy and and specific heat at constant pressure divided by temperature for temperatures 300 to 3500 degrees R, hydrogen-carbon ratios from 0.10 to 0.20, and fuel-air ratios from zero to stoichiometric. Effects of pressure and dissociation are considered negligible.
Numerical examples illustrate application of charts to thermodynamic computations for gas-turbine engines.

Tis report presents a convenient method for calculating the pitching moment characteristics of tapered wings with sweepback and twist. The method is based on the fact that the pitching-moment characteristics of a wing may be specified by giving the value of the pitching moment at zero lift and the location of the axis about which the moment is constant. Data for calculating these characteristics are presented by curves which apply to wings having a linear distribution of twist along the span and which cover a large range of aspect ratios. The curves are given for wings having straight taper and distorted elliptical plan forms. The characteristics of wings of other shapes may be determined by interpolation.
