9781330319116: The Steam Engineer's Handbook: A Convenient Reference Book, for All Persons Interested in Steam Boilers, Steam Engines, Steam Turbines, and the ... Machinery of Power Plants (Classic Reprint)

The Steam Engineer's Handbook is volume that began for tradesmen in the early 20th century. Small, straightforward and satisfactory to requirements. It begins with practical mathematical guidance which could benefit any elementary student of applied mathematics. Volumes of cylinders, cubes and oblongs and equations for the measurement of pressure within a pipe or boiler. The contents hardly stop there however, and the reader can expect a practical guide to relevant chemistry, a construction brief on the major types of furnace and stern directive on how to obtain quality steam. It is likely this comprehensive approach that kept this book in use for engineers until later in the century and keeps it relevant to this day.

This book was intended to be, in its author's words, 'A convenient reference book for all persons interested in Steam Boilers, Steam Engines, Steam Turbines and the other Auxiliary appliances and Machinery of Power plants'. Calculated to be a handbook in the literal sense this book is academic without the faintest trace of elitism and optimistic about the possibility of solving just about any steam engine, boiler or auxiliary system problem. The scope was ambitious from the start but it keeps this book fascinating.

At the time of writing these technologies did not simply heat homes, baths or meals for society. It pushed steamships across the Atlantic and powered cross continental trains to cut through the unbroken landscape. This technology was reaching the world and bringing it within our grasp. This book stowed away in the pockets of the engineers as they went.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 344 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.Excerpt from The Steam Engineers Handbook: A Convenient Reference Book, for All Persons Interested in Steam Boilers, Steam Engines, Steam Turbines, and the Auxiliary Appliances and Machinery of Power PlantsThis handbook is intended as a reference volume for persons engaged in the actual management and care of steam engines, steam boilers, and the auxiliary appliances to be found in the average steampower plant. The aim of the publishers has been to select data of general interest from the vast store of available material, and to combine therewith information relating to the problems and difficulties likely to be encountered in the daily work of the engineer and the fireman. In order to keep the book of such size as to be carried conveniently in the pocket, the treatment of many of the subjects has necessarily been brief; but subjects of greater importance, as, for example, the care and operation of boilers and engines, have been dealt with more fully. The various tables have been selected with great care, and only those have been included which are likely to be consulted most frequently. The numerous rules and formulas are stated as simply and concisely as possible, and their applications are clearly illustrated by the full solution of many examples.
