Balloon Physics
The physics of  generating lift in a balloon are generally poorly understood by balloon pilots. To an even greater extent are the mechanical and structural forces within a balloon system. The report which can be downloaded from this page is comprised of 2 articles which were published in Balloon Life Magazine many years ago. Both articles were written by William G. Phillips. I have tried to obtain permission to republish these articles on several occasions without response.
