(1) THIS book is an abridged edition of the author's larger work on the subject, and has been specially arranged for the practical man as well as for students in engineering colleges. It is one of the best arranged and most complete of the smaller treatises which have appeared on this subject, and as the author has made use of the latest published results of research on the strength of materials, the book is thoroughly up to date. The book deals very successfully not only with the various problems involved in the calculations of the stresses and strains produced by different kinds of loads, but also with the methods now adopted for carrying out tests of all kinds on the materials used by engineers and architects. The author gives valuable advice as to the precautions which must be taken in order to secure trustworthy results when tests are made, and as to the most suitable types of machines for different classes of tests. Mr. Andrews is to be congratulated on having produced an excellent text-book, which will be of considerable use to both engineers and architects.
