In this spectacular edition, Fundamentals of course do not change but their applications are being
pursued in a more sophisticated manner accompanied by the use of
scientific principles not hitherto associated with present-day usage. In
its revised form the book will portray the present state of affairs and
will continue to serve the purpose for which it originally appeared.
Since the book was first written the character of technical education
has changed a great deal with production engineering appearing on the
calendars of polytechnics and universities. The book should be a useful
source of knowledge for students on such courses and for those in the
more advanced stages of City and Guilds and TEC courses.
