Excerpt from Balancing of Engines, Steam, Gas, and Petrol: An Elementary Text-Book, Using Principally Graphical Methods; For the Use of Students, Draughtsmen, Designers, and Buyers of Engines; With Numerous Tables and Diagrams The development of the motor-car engine, and the successful installation of steam turbines for land and marine use, have been the means of directing more attention to the subject of engine balancing. The smooth running of an engine depends mainly on two factors: a more or less uniform torque on the crank-shaft, and good balance of the inertia forces of the engine. The latter forms the subject-matter of the present work; the former cannot be left without any mention, a chapter is therefore devoted to it. With the exception of a few analytical investigations, the method of treatment is graphical. In fact, the engineering student will recognize many geometrical methods with which he is familiar as applied to Statics of Structures.

Chemical Technology is based on lectures the author gave at the Technische Hochschule of Karlsruhe and at the University of Freiburg. Part 1 of this book deals with chemical technology and describes subjects dealing with apparatus, unit operations, and chemical economics. The text reviews industrial chemical reactions, raw materials preparation for reaction, thermal and catalytic processes, and a history of chemical technology. This part also addresses transportation, storage of raw materials, and the design and construction of a chemical factory. Part 2 concerns special chemical technology, including topics such as raw material upgrading; processing of products in the chemical industry; and unit processes application toward consumer goods production. This part reviews materials sourcing from animals, minerals, and vegetables, such as processing of products from living organisms, the recovery of sugar, starch, and other carbohydrates. The book also reviews products of the chemical industry including low-molecular weight consumer goods, detergents, aromas, explosives, plastics, elastomers, synthetic leather, textile, and some building materials. Chemistry students, chemical and process technology students, and mechanical engineering students with interest in chemistry will find this book valuable.

Sir James Alfred Ewing (1855-1935) was a Scottish engineer, physicist and cryptographer. First published in 1926, as the fourth edition of an 1894 original, this book was written by Ewing 'to present the subject of heat-engines, in their mechanical as well as their thermodynamical aspects, with sufficient fulness for the ordinary needs of University students of engineering'. The text was extensively revised for this edition, taking into account developments in relation to steam turbines, steam boilers and internal combustion engines. Numerous illustrative figures are also provided. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Ewing's writings, steam engines and the history of engineering.
