Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Many, many other questions will remain open forever, but we should work on points that are 100% sure (and the salvo plot is), not on "guesses". IMHO the salvo plot just represents the ordered course, the time of the order to change course and possibly the ordered speed. It does not contain informat...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

@Antonio
At 20 knots under hard rudder Bismarck needs 48 seconds for 45°...and hard rudder wasn't allowed at high speed. So I have my doubts that 30 seconds are possible.

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

@Antonio

As I said I'm working with another version of the footage, but as long as the assumed main error is eliminated even +/-5 seconds should be accurate enough.

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

@ Herr Nillson, how much do you think the speed of the film needs to be " adjusted " ? It depends. I consider it likely that Lagemann slowed down his camera from standard 24 fps to the minimum of 18 fps. Additionally we have to take the frame rate of the available video into account. My PAL-DVD-cop...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Alecsandros, maybe I‘ve overlooked it, but I couldn‘t find a question. That‘s why I‘m asking.

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Antonio, yes, I know. After Alberto had remind me, that there was this picture, I scanned the one from Bush's book. This picture drove me mad, because there was absoutely no match. :stubborn: Full of despair I even tried to make Bismarck sail away! :oops: But this made it even worse. :pray: The main...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello everybody, @ Herr Nilsson, as stated, there is a good not edited version of that photo available at the Bundesarchiv - Freiburg into the Lagemann file with reference Bild 146-1968-015-012. Hello Antonio, The Bundesarchiv picture seems to be the same edited picture like the one from Busch's bo...

Hello everybody, @ Herr Nillson, you wrote : @Antonio I'm still evaluating the picture Alberto had posted. This picture is a very hard nut to crack. Do you know where the picture had its origin? Is it a scan from a book ? That picture is by fact an impossible nut to crack in my personal opinion and...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

@ Bill Jurens There were, of course, problem areas with the design, but these revolved around much larger issues, such as difficulty in establishing -- or more properly maintaining -- an optimal position for the longitudinal center of buoyancy, particularly as machinery weights were adjusted during ...

@Antonio

I'm still evaluating the picture Alberto had posted. This picture is a very hard nut to crack. Do you know where the picture had its origin? Is it a scan from a book?

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

@Bill Jurens That's Bismarck's hydrostatic pressure height plan. DruckhöhenplanBS.jpg In regard of damage and hydrodynamic stress: Evers1.jpg Evers2.jpg It was considered more sensible to make provisional shorings dependend on the location of the damage than to build thicker bulkheads and more stiff...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

@Antonio First I have to evaluate the picture provided by Alberto. However, it seems to me, that my working hypothesis was probably wrong. It's better to have a clear picture than a blurred one. Fortunately NH 69730 and the "final salvo" are clear and my work wasn't for nothing. The training of the ...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

@Alberto If you are right in regard of Yes, the same images can be taken with Bismarck on 270°. The speculation of Mr.Nilsson that Bismarck never turned away due to the torpedo alarm is worth the one of Mr.Wadinga, that she was always on 270° since 5:55..... :kaput: then the first answer is yes, if ...
