Below are two reports referenced in the paper, "Hydrogen tube vehicle for supersonic transport: 4. Hydrogen propeller," published in the International Journal of Hydrogen Energy (see "Publications") as part of a series whose collective objective is to analyze the scientific foundations and feasibility of the supersonic hydrogen tube vehicle. This paper discusses the characteristics and technology of the hydrogen propeller.
The purpose of this study is to accurately determine the frontal area of the Q400 airplane, based on the digital image found on the Bombardier Q400 website, using ImageJ software.

The purpose of this study is to determine the surface area of the entire Bombardier Q400 airplane, as well as the surface area of the fuselage only, using an accurate 3D (three-dimensional) computer model that corresponds to the dimensions of the actual airplane. Specifically, the ratio of these surface areas is determined.
