Experimental Mechanical Engineering: for Engineers and for Students in Engineering Laboratories

    Abstract

    THE precise methods of the physical laboratory have long since been applied in the realm of engineering practice. In workshops, factories, engine-rooms, and steel-works, scientific appajatus is found in ever-increasing quantity. Specifications are drawn up with scientific accuracy and contracts have to be carried out within fine limits. Not only during tests, but also as a matter of daily routine, records of pressure, temperatures, velocities, volumes, and analyses have to bo taken at frequent intervals, and every engineer must be something of a physicist. Of the scientific apparatus in use, there is an endless variety constantly being added to, and the need of an authoritative text-book on the subject is apparent.
