Machine Design


    FEW men are more qualified to speak with authority upon the experimental side of machine design than the author of this little book. Indeed, we are inclined to the opinion that it might well have been entited “Experimental Machine Design,” since it deals almost exclusively with Prof. Benjamin's classica experiments upon the behaviour of certain machine parts when tested to destruction. Our general opinion of the book can be summed up in a very few words—“excellent as a sample.” We trust, however, that it is but a sample of what the author intends to give to the engineering world in the near future.

    Machine Design.
