About this title:

Synopsis: Although cast iron was used in pagoda construction in ancient China, it was in Britain in the eighteenth century that new methods allowed for its production in quantities that enabled widespread use. An engineer who had educated himself tirelessly in technical subjects from carpentry to architecture, Thomas Tredgold (1788-1829) first published this work in 1822. It served as a standard textbook for British engineers in the early nineteenth century, and several translations extended its influence on the continent. Reissued here in the fourth edition of 1842, edited and annotated by the structural engineer Eaton Hodgkinson (1789-1861), who presents his own research in the second volume, this work addresses both practical and mathematical questions in assessing metallic strength. In Volume 1, wherever progress has been made since the original publication, Hodgkinson adds notes to Tredgold's original text. In Volume 2, Hodgkinson provides details of his own advanced experiments.

Book Description: First published in 1822 and reissued here in the 1842 fourth edition, this work by Thomas Tredgold (1788-1829) served as a standard textbook for engineers in the early nineteenth century. Annotated and enhanced by the structural engineer Eaton Hodgkinson (1789-1861), the text addresses both practical and mathematical questions.
