Сторінка 29 - HORSE-POWER CHART Shows the horse-power of any stationary engine without calculation. No matter what) the cylinder diameter of stroke, the steam pressure of cut-off, the revolutions, or whether condensing or non-condensing, it's all there. Easy to use, accurate, and saves time and calculations. Especially useful to engineers and designers.
Сторінка 12 - Commutator Construction. By WM. BAXTER, JR. The business end of any dynamo or motor of the direct current type is the commutator.

Сторінка 17 - Above all Mr. Mathot's work is a practical guide. Recognizing the need of a volume that would assist the gas engine user in understanding thoroughly the motor upon which he depends for power, the author has discussed his subject without the help of any mathematics and without elaborate theoretical explanations. Every part of the gas engine is described in detail, tersely, clearly, with a thorough understanding of the requirements of the mechanic. Helpful suggestions as to the purchase of an engine,...

Сторінка 31 - ... enable a designer to carry out all the ordinary calculation necessary for the construction of steam turbines, 'hence it fills a want which is hardly met by larger and more theoretical works. Numerous tables, curves and diagrams will be found, which explain with remarkable lucidity the reason why turbine blades are designed as they are, the course which steam takes through turbines of various types, the thermodynamics of steam turbine calculation, the influence of vacuum on steam consumption of...
