* speed calculations for ausdampfverfahren and auswanderungsverfahren;
* torpedo running time base on range and actual range to target based on torpedo running time;
* Time, range and speed for general navigation.

I use it all the time and find it very usefull.
Ausdampfverfahren and Auswanderungsverfahren - glad to see these being used! Iíd love to have a high quality slide rule like that. Where did you get yours?
