Excerpt from Radford s Cyclopedia of Construction, Carpentry, Building and Architecture, Vol. 6 of 12: A General Reference Work on Modern Building Materials and Methods and Their Practical Application to All Forms of Construction in Wood, Stone, Brick, Steel, and Concrete The keynote of the Cyclopedia is found in the emphasis constantly laid on the practical as distinguished from the theoretical form Of treatment, in its total avoidance Of the complicated formulas of higher mathematics, and in its redue tion Of all technical subjects to terms of the simplest and clearest English. Throughout the pages devoted to Steel Construction, for example, the mathematics Of the subject have been eliminated to such an extent that the reader will not find a single instance where even a square root sign has been used. In addition to the larger problems of engineering and building construction, one entire volume, as well as many chapters scattered through the work, is devoted to those smaller constructions that are Of special interest to the teacher or student of manual training or the home shop worker of a mechanical turn Of mind.
