Properties of Steam and Thermodynamic Theory of Turbines


IN this substantial volume Prof. Callendar has set his seal to the experimental and theoretical investigations of the properties of steam on which he has been engaged for many years. By these investigations, which have done much to advance technical thermodynamics, Prof. Callendar has made the engineering world his debtor. It is twenty-one years since he first published, in the Proceedings of the Royal Society for June, 1900, his paper on “the thermo-dynamical properties of gases and vapours as deduced from a modified form of the Joule-Thomson equation, with special reference to the properties of steam.”
